Matzoh Ball Soup

I just posted a guest blog on a neighbor's food blog welike2cook, which is part tribute to matzoh balls, and part eulogy to my husband's father-in-law Richard.

Supreme Decision

Sorry this is a day late, but I was working nights...

As a doctor and writer on Health Care issues, I will simply state re: today's supreme court decision, the health care reform bill passed by congress and upheld today, while not perfect and definitely in need of tweeking and likely further legislation, has already led to health care coverage for my ER patients, including some last night who were sweating the decision for fear they would go back to the ranks of the uninsured. 
Nothing in this world is more frightening than the indignity of being sick and being unable to obtain proper care. Nothing is more frustrating to me than telling a person with a non emergent but potentially deadly illness that there is nothing I can do for you. Any steps that give people back some of their dignity, and relieve an uncertain and morbid future is a step forward in the right direction.

A Medical Malpractic Book Update

Hello all,

I just wanted to update those who are technologically inclined that my book "How to Surivive a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit" is now available on Kindle. Which means it is also available for the ipad via the Kindle app, but since you are technologically inclined, you already know that.

Thank you all for your support.

Schizo is a Finalist Again!

Hi all, it's been an exciting Spring with Schizo. Two festivals named me a finalist, and even though I did not win, I consider this quite an achievement! The film quality at the Los Angeles United Film Festival was top notch, and attending made me realize how fortunate I was for getting so far in the screenwriting competition.

Well, I have news about another contest: The Peachtree Village International Film Festival Screenwriting Competition has named me a finalist! It is being held in Atlanta this August, in Midtown - W Hotel and the Woodruff Arts Center. Crossing my fingers for a win this time.
