How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Most of my work is Historical Fiction, primary set during the Holocaust. Because my mother was Jewish and my father was Romany, I grew up knowing that the Third Reich had a terrible effect on my family. I spent years doing research about what happened, and then I began to write. I found that the more I wrote the more I had a message I wanted to share. The message became the title for the first novel I ever published. The novel is called “A Flicker of Light,” and the message is that…even in the darkest hour there is always a flicker of light.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Be kind to each other. We should not be in competition, we are a family. We need to share ideas and build the literary community together.
I always hate to write bio’s because the truth is that the writing is not about me, it is about the reader. You, the reader are the reason I write. It is a privilege to share my work with you. Your input means the world to me., so please feel free to contact me at my website or friend me on Facebook.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book is different from all of my other work. I wrote it because I grew up in the late 1960’s early 1970’s. Every period in history has interesting aspects, and this one was certainly no exception. It was a time when young people were finding their voice. The Viet Nam war was raging, against a background of protesters. The women’s movement had come to light. It was just filled with so many new idea’s that I had to write a book set during this period. “Lilly” is the story of a young girl on a difficult, but enlightening road to self discovery.
