Hi! I’m Stephanie. Born and bred in Brooklyn, I now live with my husband and three kids in the suburbs of New Jersey in a home with a wrap around porch. It’s my favorite place to write. Currently working on a book length memoir, I write about my experiences following a dream that took me and my husband from NYC to the other side of the world to meet a 2 year old boy in Kazakhstan. Adopting and falling in love with our son was the hardest and most joyful experience of our lives.
You can often find me sitting on our porch swing with my family, browsing our local bookshop or gathering with friends and fellow writers in a local coffee shop surrounded by too many pens, an array of notebooks, and a very messy, but functional, planner.
Fun fact: I’m reality TV pioneer! In 2002, I gave birth on national television to my first daughter on TLC’s A Baby Story. I needn’t have worried. Only four people ever recognized me on the street. (In all seriousness, being on the show — as well as a subsequent Where Are They Now? episode — was a highlight of my life. Ask me about it.)
