Rochelle B. Weinstein is a best-selling author of contemporary fiction novels. Weinstein was born and bred in Miami alongside her siblings Ron, Randi, and Robert. Growing up in Florida, the young Rochelle would be often be found with a book from the likes of Judy Blume and Sidney Sheldon. Once she graduated from the University of Maryland, she decided to move to the West Coast, to Los Angeles and she got a job in advertising. She worked at the LA Weekly where she was in charge of promotions and advertising for record labels and film studios. After several years in Los Angeles, she went back home to Miami, and got a job at the prestigious “Beber Silverstein & Partners” as an Account Executive. She had been working the job for less than a year when she got an offer to go work at “The Miami Herald,” which she readily accepted. She would then spend a decade managing the promotions, marketing, and advertising for all the record labels that were working with “The Box Music Network.” She had her offices on the south beach where record executives and musicians would throng the building. Her work involved listening to great music and meeting talented superstars, which Weinstein found to be a lot of fun.

Weinstein soon got married and when she got her kids, found her next dream job in raising them. She decided to quit her job and take care of her children when The Box relocated to New York. In between taking care of the twins, volunteering at organizations dear and near to her heart, PTA meetings, cheering the Heat and Dolphins, carpooling, writing freelance, flag football, lacrosse tournaments and basketball she got her third dream job – a full-time fiction author. She wrote her first novel “What We Leave Behind” in 2012 to critical acclaim. The USA Today author would go on to write several more novels including “Somebody’s Daughter,” “Where We Fall” and “The Mourning After.” She has asserted that while she felt lost after The Box decided to relocate away from Miami, the loss of that job opened the path to her writing career and she has never felt happier or had more fun.

Rochelle B. Weinstein says that the question she is most asked is whether any of her novels are about her real-life experiences. For Weinstein though it is more about writing of what you know and crafting a novel is not only about observing from what is around you or personal experience. Her novels are full of the feelings, emotions, and lessons which are weaved throughout the stories to create something unique and authentic. “What We Leave Behind” which is her debut chronicles the emotional growth and life of Jessica Parker as she tries to free herself from a troubled past and moved toward better things. She is only sixteen years old and has to deal with the deep pain of a failed relationship and the death of her father. Her first love has just walked out of her life leaving her in profound pain after a summer of intense romance. Weinstein’s “The Mourning After” is the story of a fifteen-year-old girl Levon Keller that survived a tragic accident in which her older brother the golden child and star athlete David lost his life. The family is left in a fragile state and Levon feels guilty of surviving and is lost in trying to take care of her younger sister and the memory of her brother. “Where We Fall” is a novel about Abby Holden, the wife of a popular football coach and mother to a beautiful teenager who has a dark secret. She had committed an act of betrayal to achieve her good life which has made her depressed. Her husband has tried everything and while he is great at coaxing his teams to win he cannot find it in himself to heal what ails his family.

Levon Keller had his license restricted but then his brother calls him from a local party and asks him to pick him up though he knows he should not be driving. Keller gets into a terrible accident and his brother David dies. The family is distraught at the tragedy with everyone seemingly devastated given that their favorite son was still very young. Levon has to deal with the intolerable cruelty and blame from his grieving parents even as he has to care for his younger sibling afflicted with a rare genetic condition. When a captivating teenager named Lucy Bell moves in next door with her family, Levon is drawn to her wisdom, beauty, and allure.
