About me

Location New York
Introduction I am the author of several novels including IN SIGHT OF STARS and THE MEMORY OF THINGS. When I'm not writing, I'm hanging with my husband and two great boys, or swimming in a pool or the Long Island Sound, or working my day job as a divorce mediator/lawyer. For News and Appearances check updates at my website: I am represented by Jim McCarthy of Dystel, Goderich & Bourret Literary Management. Like me on facebook here, or follow me on twitter @gaepol.
Favorite Movies In no particular order (and with every attempt to blatantly carbon date myself by this list): The Graduate, The Swimmer, Swingers, The Princess Bride, A Little Romance, and Anchorman.
Favorite Music Jason Isbell, Avett Brothers, Beatles, and more. . . almost always changing. . .
Favorite Books anything by William Goldman, but especially Boys & Girls Together and The Color of Light; To Be Sung Underwater, by Tom McNeal; History of Love by Nicole Krauss; Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer; YA: Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco Stork; Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You by Peter Cameron; The Liberation of Gabriel King by K.L. Going, Bad Things Happen, by Harry Dolan and a yet unpublished manuscript called Facade by my friend Christine Beth Reish.
