Frequently Asked Questions

Reader Questions

Q: How can I get signed copies of your books?
A: Due to the pandemic, I'm not signing books at this time, but you can get signed bookplates for That Way Madness Lies by ordering through Third Place Books or Mysterious Galaxy, and for Cool for the Summer by ordering via the preorder campaign. (If you're outside the US, email me with a proof of purchase and we'll work something out.)

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: 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: 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.

Other Questions

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 by a deadline. Feel free to send requests to either me or 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.

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.
