Welcome

I am glad you’ve found your way to my official website. You don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy these suspense novels; they were written intentionally to be accessible to readers of any—or no—faith. For your convenience, a glossary is included at the end of each book. And if you are Jewish, you’ll appreciate the hidden symbolism scattered throughout.

I write my books to answer Big Questions. Destined to Choose is my answer to the question Why is there evil in the world? Strength to Stand is my answer to How much intolerance should we tolerate—and if it’s none, aren’t we being intolerant too? 

Please enjoy your stay. There’s a lot to see here, and I hope you’ll come back for more.

When a college freshman’s philosophy paper on the Holocaust jeopardizes her relationship with her grandfather, she finds herself alone and afraid on the streets of Minneapolis. Help comes in the form of Rabbi David Cohen, who is struggling with his own personal demons. Trained in both psychology and Talmudic argument, David must help this family face the real issue that divides them. Set against the backdrop of a Jewish holiday of mourning, they bring together their experiences as they confront evil itself and answer a cry for help that no one expected.
