    I loved the Compass series and I’m extremely excited about Craving Flight. I cannot think of another author who has set a BDSM themed romance in an Orthodox Jewish Community. It’s a bold move and if any author can pull it off, it will be you.

    I was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family and although I’m not religious now, I’m fascinated by fiction which reflects this culture.

    Erotic romance is possibly less diverse than mainstream romantic fiction and although there are Jewish writers writing erotica, their main characters seldom reflect this.

    So hats off to you for trying something different.

      Thank you! I’m half-thrilled and half-terrified for this novella to come out. The original prompt was wonderful and I hope I managed to do it justice. It was important to me to be respectful of the community and their (widely varying!) beliefs. I really enjoyed doing the research, and was incredibly lucky to have a friend in the community offer her time and opinions, which was invaluable. It was definitely a challenge, but hopefully my readers will enjoy it! Thanks again for commenting : )
