Holly-Jane Rahlens graduated from my alma mater, Forest Hills High School in Queens, but ran off to Berlin where literary stardom found her, so if you understand predetermination, you’ll know why the two of us had no choice but to do this blog interview.

An enchanting excerpt from Holly-Jane’s novel BECKY BERNSTEIN GOES BERLIN is — (zwar) — at this link.

And to see the trailer for the film MAX MINSKY AND ME — adapted by Holly-Jane from her book PRINCE WILLIAM, MAXIMILIAN MINSKY AND ME — go here.
