Dear Librarians,

I'm thrilled to announce the arrival of my debut novel, THE MORELS, which Library Journal has declared "one of the top first novels of the year."

Arthur Morel, husband and father living in New York City, publishes a book that rips his happy family apart. Why would he do such a thing? Arthur's old schoolmate, envious of everything Arthur has just thrown away, is fascinated with this very question as they become accidentally reacquainted. But things are not always what they seem. THE MORELS poses questions to which there are no easy answers: Where is the line between art and obscenity, between truth and fiction? Is it possible to escape the past? Can you save your family by destroying it?

I'll be giving away 5 signed copies of THE MORELS. Email me at for a chance to win one.
