Hi, new visitors!

Hello, visitors from Writers' Houses! Thanks for coming to my website. You'll notice it's not too crazy. Have a look around, and if you'd like to contact me, feel free to email me at julia.pistell@gmail.com (or, if it's a Twain thing, julia.pistell@marktwainhouse.org).


My Old New Jersey Home

Yesterday my parents came for a visit from New Jersey.  We headed over to a classy Derby party, picked a horse that sounds like a discount grocery store, and went home with some cash.  The last time I bet on a horse, I was in the Off Track Betting facility out in the wastelands by Bradley airport.  The horse was named Spanky Fishbein and I made a few dollars that day too.  Sometimes the various ways we can experience the same thing truly amazes me. Then, this morning, I found that the Star Ledger published a short review/essay about Twain I wrote for the museum.  Thanks, New Jersey!
