When I’m not working with stressed-out and amazing high school students, I write about them and all the beautiful, crazy, painful, and diverse things that surround us every day.
Born and raised in Hungary, as a teenager I lived in many different places around the world, including Cuba, Lebanon, Uganda, and Syria. I received my BA in English, Spanish, and French Translation at the Universidad Intercontinental in Mexico City where I lived for ten years. I’ve been calling Texas home for the past two decades where I reside with my husband and one of our three children still in high school.
I am the founder and administrator of two active online writers groups where I've met the most amazing and inspiring writers who support my every endeavor with their wisdom and enthusiasm. During the day, I work with teenagers who never cease to amaze me with their creativity, humor, and resilience. I also mentor over-worked high school seniors during their college application process, helping them perfect the dreaded college essay and reminding them that even though college is important, where they’ll go is not who they’ll be. I’m also often found as a photographer behind my camera catching those moments that can't be described with words.
My newest adventure is the funding of a non-profit organization that helps isolated high school students to find a safe and non-judgmental place to connect with peers through team activities. For more information check out our website.
My writings have appeared in publications and I’m currently finishing up my third novel, a literary YA set in the present.
