Welcome to my website! This is where you can learn about my books, about me, and about where you can find me on social media and in real life. On this page are some nice things people said about my first two books, PLAYLIST FOR THE DEAD and PUSHING PERFECT


"[D]ebut author Falkoff gives Sam a strong voice to narrate his grief over the loss of his best friend and his confusion... distinctive and gripping narrative about a shared human challenge: how to deal with the passing of a loved one."
Publishers Weekly

"The strong characters, dialogue and the use of the playlist to structure the book make this a good pick for struggling readers."
School Library Journal

"Centering each chapter on one of the playlist’s songs, debut author Falkoff lightens the substantial topics of grief, bullying, and suicide with Sam’s engaging investigation into the culprit behind the assaults."


"[F]ull of well-developed, diverse supporting characters...recommended for teens who enjoy mysteries in the form of timely, realistic fiction.

"Reminiscent of the novels of Joan Lowery Nixon and Lois Duncan with its methodical uncovering of clues and multiple red herrings, this mystery set in a modern-day well-to-do suburb in California will keep readers turning the pages...A good choice for those looking for a compelling mystery."
School Library Journal

"[R]eaders will be kept guessing until they get there-which will please established mystery fans."
