A Hanukkah Miracle!

ahanukkahmiracle_200

Leah has had to listen to her mother’s nagging for months. It’s getting so much worse now that the holidays are approaching. Her mother seems bound and determined to find her a husband.

Leah, on the other hand, is determined to live life on her own terms. But it’s that time crazy of the year, a time for menorahs and candles, latkes, big family gatherings, cute guys, bad blind dates, and old-fashioned holiday fun.

Mix together a sexy Jewish delivery man, a dental chair, a sudden snowstorm and a latke competition and you get, just maybe, a Hanukkah miracle.

Oooh- perty! Sexy! Pushing Her Bounderies.

PushingHerBoundaries_200(1)

My sexy contemp. Go buy it. Seriously. This is both fun and sexy. Loved re-writing!

Registered nurse Maggie is done with men. Flying to Minneapolis to celebrate her sister’s engagement, she’s seated beside the type of man she always falls for. A sexy, arrogant alpha jerk.

Dr. Mace Williams irritates the woman next to him. She’s so damn sexy, he doesn’t care. When their seatmate suffers a cardiac arrest, Maggie and Mace team up to save his life, but despite their stellar teamwork it’s too late. Mace makes an unscheduled stop to meet with the man’s family while Maggie continues her journey.

In Minneapolis, Maggie heads to a restaurant with her sister, only to find Mace waiting. Worse, she learns he’s the brother of her sister’s fiance. But still, he is a sexy beast. Stuck in her sister’s apartment with Mace, Maggie offers him one night of sex, anything goes. No obligations, no recriminations.

Mace agrees…he wants more than Maggie’s body, he wants her heart.

Thrown into a disastrous canoe trip, they must once again work together, but this time it’s their own survival at stake. Maggie must face her demons and trust Mace with her life. Mace is determined to save her, regardless of what the future brings.

Announcements.

Will be offline for a few weeks in early September.

For the time being all my books are available on Amazon exclusively. Nothing personal. This is a financial decision, but it is not set in stone. I will be evaluating the situation daily.

One of these days I shall get around to telling the my story. In the meantime, keep writing. It’s food for the soul.

What are you waiting for? Like I tell my dog, 1, 2, 3… Write!!!

Go ahead. Write. What’s the worst that can happen?

Well, let’s get this over with.

I’ll tell you the worst– you fail. You fail miserably. Few people read your book. Those who do say you suck.

Done.

That’s it.

Don’t give up your day job… yet. (And never ever ever respond to bad reviews.)

I kept my day job for five years after I published my first book. And if I still had three kids in college at once I’d be working at least half-time.

If readers say you suck, keep writing. You will improve. Practice doesn’t make perfect but it makes better.

Write your book. Get some help with editing. Get some help with formatting. Get a cover. These things are not expensive. I know, I do it all the time. Uploading to D2D and Amazon is easy as pie. If I can do it, you can do it.

One, two, three… Write!

#jhrom Jewish Romance. My heroines are smart, sexy, and yes, Jewish!

Here’s what my twitter bio says: (It really says this, I wrote it myself.)

Iowan.Writer of smart genre fiction. A lover of all things syfy, fantasy, GSDs. A Jewish hero or heroine in all my work. Author of the award-winning Captured.

Even if it is unstated, all my heroines are Jewish – from Mari in Captured, to Cara in Come Back to Me, to Eva in Beauty and the Feast, to Sara in Incorporeal, to Dr. Meera Driver in my fun Vixen comics. All of them.

Why?

1. I may be a mix of things, but I’m Jewish. My world view was and is shaped by my Jewish  roots, my Jewish family, my Jewish experiences, my Jewish education, the study of the Hebrew language and the Hebrew Bible, along with the New Testament (Hey, Jesus was a total Jew.), and my obsession with the study of history and religions.

2. I hate TSTL heroines. Hate ’em with a grand passion.

3. Every heroine I write is an aspect of me. Thus she/they is/are Jewish. And I’ve thrown some Jewish heroes into the stories for good measure.

4. Jewish women are hot. Get used to it. Sexy does not negate smart. Neither does smart negate sexy. Smart IS sexy.

5. I ain’t gonna hide what I am. I’m proud to be Jewish. I’m proud of what I write. I write what I want. And what I want is to write books about competent, complex, canny Jewish women.

Read my books. You will like them.
