About Marilyn

Welcome to my website!  After over thirty years working in the educational field, I retired in 2010 and finally have the time to write. Thanks to Laurie Clevenson at the (Capital Region, New York, Jewish World, my stories have been published regularly, and many of the stories on this blog were originally printed there. Beginning in 2015, Christine DeSousa at the (Orlando) Heritage Florida Jewish News also has published many of my articles.

I am following in the footsteps of my mother, Frances Cohen, who at the age of 88 joined a writer’s group at her independent living residence and finally wrote down her stories. In honor of my mother, this blog will have her stories as well as mine.. Enjoy them, and feel free to comment.. I would love to hear from you!
