When Anita was growing up in Brooklyn, NY, she believed there to be 10 species of turtles. Then, she fell for a turtle lover from the Bronx. He set her straight about the almost 280 turtle species in the world, and proceeded to fill their home with turtles!

Background Information

Reading was always a huge part of my life, the local library being almost a second home. Year 'round, I'd carry out as many books as I was allowed. In summer, the books' plastic bindings stuck to my skin; in winter, they'd slipped through my arms as I held them to my chest. Although I was a reporter for my high school newspaper, writing wasn't a big part of my life until my twenties, when I became a copywriter in the college department of a New York publishing house. I went on to become a direct response copywriter. I've also written for magazines, among them Ranger Rick, OMNI, Health, Eco Traveler, and the "Sunday" section of the New York Times Magazine. My husband Allen's hobby is turtles. When he became the "adoption chairperson" for the New York Turtle and Tortoise Society, our first apartment filled up with turtles—swimming in the tub, living in tanks in the kitchen, and having sex and laying eggs on the living room floor! In response, I wrote Confessions of a Turtle Wife, the story of how I learned to live with and love my man who loves turtles. I'm from Brooklyn, Allen is from the Bronx, we met while living in Manhattan and now reside in Queens, New York. Our household is comprised of us, three cats and a mere 13 turtles, three of which are mine. Anyone with a hobby-addicted spouse is sure to relate to how I learned to live with (and laugh at!) my husband's um…unusual…obsession.
