Rochel Burstyn

Rochel Burstyn is an Australian currently living in Detroit with her husband and lovely children and gets around in her faithful blue van which is held together with duct tape. She’s a muggle who writes consistently for a number of Jewish publications and is the author of 9 children’s books to date. When she’s not writing, she can probably be found eating chocolate, doing laundry or half-heartedly training for a marathon she signed up for on a whim.
