Thanks to Taria Reed ( for the fabulous cover!

You’ve been waiting patiently, and I’m so delighted to share that I have an official launch date set for my newest contemporary romance, EVERY OTHER SATURDAY! The book is getting its finishing touches over the next few weeks, and will be available for Kindle* (and Kindle-friendly devices like the iPad) on Tuesday, August 4th, 2015.

This is a different kind of romance for me – featuring two unique characters who are both divorced with small kids – and I hope you’ll enjoy reading about Dave, Julia and their many complications as much as I have enjoyed writing them.

Pre-order the book here and it will be delivered automagically to your favorite device on the launch date.

Book bloggers/reviewers: if you are interested in an Advanced Reader Copy of EVERY OTHER SATURDAY, please contact me by June 30, 2015.


Even though their daughters have been in the same Jewish preschool class for three years, struggling store owner Julia Mendel and sports blogger Dave “from the Man Cave” Bernstein have never gotten along. She sees him as a definitely arrogant, possibly misogynist symbol of everything that’s wrong with the men in her life. He sees her as the odd, short-tempered PTA president who always makes his life more complicated.

Then Dave accepts an on-air challenge: go out with a different woman from a Jewish dating website every Saturday for the next four months, and blog the results. He quickly secures his daughter’s favorite preschool teacher and super-nanny Ms. Elizabeth to make the experiment possible. Little does he know Julia is in desperate need of the same sitter for the same schedule, so that she can take a part-time job while pacifying her son, who has severe OCD.

A confrontation in the carpool lane leads to an uneasy compromise: they will pool their resources to share Ms. Elizabeth’s services every-other Saturday night. After a while, Dave finds himself sharing his dating stories with non-Jewish Julia across her kitchen table; while she reluctantly turns to him for the masculine perspective – especially for her son – she’s been missing since her divorce. As the Saturdays wear on, however, they may discover they have more in common than car seats and custody schedules.

EVERY OTHER SATURDAY is a story about finding help when you need it most, and love where you expect it least.

*This is a digital-only release for now. Unfortunately, paperbacks won’t be available in the short term for this title. Sorry, pulp addicts and bathtub readers.

To celebrate the launch, I’m also hosting a giveaway for an Amazon gift card. It comes in your size!

Please comment on and share this page, and come back to say hello often. Good luck and happy reading!
