Her qualifications from the Language Tuition Center in London, England included interpreter/translator in English and French with German as her third language.

The series began when her son’s Bar Mitzvah teacher discovered Yvonne’s writing talents, and she suggested that Yvonne write a book for the Jewish High Holidays. Fascinated with the history of the Jewish settlers in the Catskill Mountains, Yvonne chose this setting for Out of the Apple Orchard, her first book for children. She is now close to completing the second book in the Apple Tree Series.
Yvonne was inducted into Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honors Society. She is a guest speaker at schools, conferences, and libraries. Yvonne is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. She also served as Literary Selection Committee member and Board member of the Jack Kerouac Writers-in-Residence Project of Orlando, Inc, a literary retreat for talented writers worldwide.

Much appreciation goes to my son, who inspired me to write the Apple Tree Series books
