Frequently Asked Questions

Reader Questions

Q: Where can I find content warnings for His Hideous Heart?

A: In my Goodreads review.

Q: Can I read Under the Lights without having read Behind the Scenes?

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.

Q: Can I read Right of First Refusal without reading Last Will and Testament?

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?

A: Nope, that’s it. I love my Radleigh girls and their partners and I wouldn’t mess with them for all the macarons in Paris. There are some fun bonus scenes here and here, though!

Q: Which of your books are f/f?

A: Under the Lights and Out on Good Behavior, as well as my upcoming Cool for the Summer. My stories in All Out (“Molly’s Lips”) and His Hideous Heart ("Lygia") are as well.

Q: Which of your books have Jewish main characters?

A: No novels, but you can find Jewish main characters at the heart of my stories in The Radical Element (“Daughter of the Book”) and It’s a Whole Spiel ("Two Truths and an Oy"), and well as the upcoming That Way Madness Lies.

 

Q: I found the scenes between Van and Bri in Under the Lights really hot, even though I’m straight. Is that weird?

A: Not even a little bit.

Author Questions

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: Not at present, unfortunately. My plate is currently very full and it's just not something I can commit to right now. If I had to guess, I would say I will probably reopen to blurbs in January 2020.

 

In general, I am happy to consider reading for blurbs as long as there's reasonable turnaround time and you can offer a bound manuscript/ARC; I unfortunately cannot commit to reading electronically by a deadline. You can send requests through my agent, or however makes sense based on how and how well we/your agent/editor and I know each other.

Q: Can I interview you?
A: Sure! Hit me up through the contact tab.

Q: Do you do school visits?
A: I do not, because having a fulltime job makes that really difficult. But I'm happy to help you find someone great who does!
