I'm a wife, mother and grandmother, and great-grandmother first and foremost. Observant Jewish by faith. Free spirit by nature. I have wanted to be an author since I was very small, and being the determined character that I am, I now am one. It hasn't been an easy road. Although I had articles and small pieces published whilst I was still in primary school, I struggled with the publishing world of books. My first ever novel, Working it Out, (#1 in the Rifki Nesher/Goldberg trilogy) was published in 1990 and several others followed on, totaling 18 to date with my latest book Coercion, which was also a serial in the Ami magazine.  My earliest crime books, the Dark Tapestry trilogy, are being reissued one by one each year now. The Movement, the second in the trilogy, is in production.  Next year will hopefully be Carers Ltd.  Then I really really hope my publishers will agree to go back even further and do a reissue of the Rifki Nesher trilogy and Daniel My Son. Also The Group.

 

I am still very very keen to make more of my books into audio books. Every now and then, I get an out-of-the-blue email from someone offering to help me with that project and I always answer enthusiastically, but nothing ever seems to come of it. I think the writer expects me to put a whole lot of money into the idea, and that’s not the way I want to go.  However someone has just 'come back to life' again and still wants to do the project so it might still happen! Watch this space!!

 

At the moment our living place is in a state of flux. We want to move to Ramat Eshkol in Jerusalem, as soon as our house there is ready, and it’s taking its own good time to get ready! It will be a massive lifestyle change for us. Some good (like living close to our kids, and in a more religious community) and some not so good, (losing touch with some very good friends I have made here) . I am determined that is not going to happen.
