She writes fiction and comics and is currently working on a graphic novel about Jewish identity and narrative. Check out some of her work here: www.amykurzweil.com. When she is not writing or drawing, Amy explores her interest in education (and pays her bills) as a dance teacher for unruly but lovable middle school students in the Bronx.
