“The Covid-19 lock down period was an extremely difficult time for my family and the whole of New York City. The reason I published my new young adult ebook anthology, 'Sheltering Stories: Teen Talk about Covid-19' was to provide a platform for teens to express feelings about this stressful experience. Twenty-three NYC teens from different areas, backgrounds and schools come together to tell their Covid-19 2020 lock down story. The result is 'Sheltering Stories:Teen talk about Covid-19.'"
