NEXT UP

My next book is set in Hollywood, California (1928), and stars 12-year-old Tillie Rosen. She’s a whiz kid in the kitchen, winning a reputation for creating scrumptious food in her family’s delicatessen. So, get ready to learn a bissel (a little) of Yiddish and a lot about Jewish cooking. Can Tillie’s kitchen magic help her family out of a pickle? Perhaps, if only she doesn’t insist on making everything a solo performance.
