As far as I can tell, Essie can Plank the daylights out of most of us. Don't mess with her grandkids on the playground, is the best advice I can give you.

Daniel Aaron is late! It's not enough to wake up at 5, be at work by 6, school by 3, AA by 7 & doing homework 'til 1. He should be on time for book appearances, too. Besides, I want to introduce him to my niece.

What a punim! Yes, she's satisfied, because after Rhonda Rosenheck spent 33 years as a Jewish  educator, she now edits for a living and writes just because. From 80 hour weeks to this? What's not to be satisfied? Okay, the world at large is pretty scary, but there's chocolate for that.

Rhonda lives along a dirt road near Albany, NY. In a house, baruch hashem. She loves autumn and remembers every Feb-ruary that she hates winter. (With climate change though, that'll push back to March.) She hangs out at a makerspace in Troy. Her car's a mess but her heart is pure.

Favorite role: Auntie. 

Favorite scroll: Torah.

Favortie growl: Oyyyy.
