Dear Reader,

HAMSTER ISLAND is my story of growing up in a poor, super-dysfunctional family that included a kleptomaniac grandmother and two special needs siblings, all of us residing more or less in the middle of a parking lot. There's humor and heartbreak and anyone who has ever been a caretaker will appreciate the unorthodox measures I took to find the balance between my siblings' needs and my own. As Rachel Simon says, "This tale of caregiving and self-actualization is unique, but it abounds with insights for us all."

I'm giving away five books. Write to hamsterislandmemoir@gmail.com for a chance to win.
