Anything else editors should know about you: I have written 13 books on a variety of subjects. One of my books, "Lucy's Bones, Sacred Stones, and Einstein's Brain," was adapted for the long-running History Channel series, History's Lost and Found. I have also written hundreds of articles. However, my passion is to write quirky Jewish personal essays. These essays range from humorous to serious and may provide a diversion from the usual heavy international and local news of Jewish newspapers. They may be suitable for the "Opinion” page or as essays that stand alone as features by themselves.  Ideally, I would like to have a column in a Jewish publication and I could provide essays on whatever basis a publication would like—weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or occasionally, and they could be of any length desired.

Anything else editors should know about you: Authors of the best-selling book, "What I Learned About Life When My Husband Got Fired!”  Launched by internationally renowned retailer Neiman Marcus, our self-published book soon rose in popularity as a textbook (approved by the Texas State Board of Education) and course on personal finance and Life 101. From those humble beginnings, the "Red & Black" phenomenon has gained exceptional market appeal.  Every speaking engagement brings clamor for more – books, columns, articles, videos – as our message is about personal accountability. Self-esteem grows as audiences across all socio-economic strata embrace the simple concepts and begin to own their future.

 Jewish history and personalities on coins and medals.


Anything else editors should know about you: I had my first article published in Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine in 1967. Since then my articles on coins and medals, almost all on Jewish subjects, have been published in virtually every United States numismatic publication. These have ranged from scholarly articles, such as "Gershom Mendes Seixas, The First American Jewish Medal" in Issue No. 54, 2009 of The Medal, to general articles like "Is Charles Steinmetz, Electronic Genius, Eligible for the Jewish-American Hall of Fame" in January-March, 2015 issue of The Shekel. I have also written virtually all of the text on the Jewish-American Hall of Fame's website, that includes my "Handbook of Biblical Numismatics," written originally in 1976 and periodically updated. 

I would be happy to answer any questions from AJPA members about numismatics--from ancient times to the present--Jewish, Israel, United States or the World.
