Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will there be a sequel to Cool for the Summer?
A: I am very flattered at how often I'm asked this, but there are no plans for one! I do hope to write a bonus scene or two at some point but that's it for Lara, Jasmine, and their friends. My next novel is completely unrelated.
A: You can! Reading Behind the Scenes first helps with understanding character background, especially because the first couple of chapters do fairly heavily feature Ally and Liam, but it’s not strictly necessary. If you’re interested in UtL because it’s f/f, but otherwise these books wouldn’t be your thing, by all means, go for it – nothing about Vanessa’s romantic life is tied to Behind the Scenes that can’t be gleaned from the latter’s blurb.
A: You can! I think it’s more fun to read LWaT first because Cait’s best friends are recurring characters, but it’s absolutely an independent story, with a love interest who’s new to Radleigh.
Q: Can I read Out on Good Behavior without reading the first two Radleigh books?
A: Still absolutely yes, but, this is my first book where the main character and love interest actually do meet in the previous one (Right of First Refusal), and it also has a lot of scenes involving the main characters and love interests from earlier in the series. Comprehension-wise, you’ll be fine, but it’s worth noting.
Q: Will there be more Radleigh books after Out on Good Behavior?
Q: Which of your books are f/f?
Q: Which of your books have Jewish main characters?
A: Cool for the Summer is my first novel to star one, but you can also find them helming my stories in The Radical Element (“Daughter of the Book”), It’s a Whole Spiel ("Two Truths and an Oy"), and That Way Madness Lies ("I Bleed").
Q: How do you pronounce your name?
A: Phoenetically. You can hear me say it here.
Q: How can I get involved in anthologies?
A: This is probably the most frequently asked question, so I wrote a whole blog post about it! I cannot advise you on how to be solicited for participation, other than to make your skills and passions known as best you can. If you're interested in open calls, search "open calls anthology" on Twitter; you might be amazed at how much pops up.
Q: Are you open to reading for blurb consideration?
A: I am happy to consider reading for blurbs as long as you can offer a bound manuscript/ARC; I unfortunately cannot commit to reading electronically. Feel free to send requests to my agent. *Please note that I am closed to blurb requests for 2021 titles.*
Q: Can you moderate my virtual event?
A: Probably not, unless you want to hear a baby crying in the background while a toddler yells, "Mommy, where are you?" in the background, but feel free to ask; some days and times are certainly better than others. Please note that I observe Jewish Sabbath and so am never available Friday nights or Saturdays, and because of the aforementioned children, I am about 99% less likely to be able to do an event that takes place from 7-8 p.m. EST.
Q: Can I interview you?
A: Sure! Hit me up through the contact tab and please make sure you include a deadline if there is one.
