Presentation Transcript


I grew up in Philadelphia, PA, lived in NJ for 13 years, and moved to AZ 6 years ago

I’m a multi-published, best-selling author of urban fantasy and paranormal romance

Three former students have won national writing contests, a fourth, fifth, and sixth won here in Phoenix!

I have a wonderful husband, David, and two blessed daughters – Sara, soon to be 17, and Rebecca, 13

Writing is a passion of mine, and I’m a classic musicals addict

I love scrapbooking, chocolate, and all types of music

I can’t tell a joke, but I love laughing at them

I’m goofy and good-natured with the kids, but serious about writing and reading

(Mrs. Rosenblum has high expectations.)

  • Students are expected to turn in work on time.

(Late work will not be accepted after five school days and there will be a percentage loss of points for each day late.)

  • Respect is always welcome.

(Whatever you receive is merely a

reflection of what you’ve given.)

  • Students have the same number of days that they were absent to make up any work.
  • If students are absent the day before a test or quiz, they will be expected to take the test or quiz the day they return. If a student is absent the day of an assessment, they are expected to take it the day they return.
