about

Braverman possesses a magical, incantatory voice and the ability to lift ordinary lives into the heightened world of myth." - New York TimesA thirteen-year-old girl must choose between her Grammy Award-winning mother in Beverly Hills or her pot-growing father in the Allegheny Mountains. Dr. Bernie Roth and his wife Chloe reside in a grand hacienda in La Jolla. Their children are in college, and their disappointments are profound.

She lives in the Bay Area."
