She has published thirteen internationally best-selling novels, and is the author of a hit play, “Women’s Minyan”, that has been performed more than 500 times in Israel’s National Theatre as well as in the United States and Argentine.

After twelve books over thirty years, I have finally written my first sequel.  What was there about my novel An Unorthodox Match, that I just couldn't let go?    And how through the years have I navigated the choppy waters of being the first to write novels about the ultra-Orthodox world- receiving so much flak along the way- to now being just one of many? How do I feel about the explosion in the literary and entertainment world of novels and television shows based in the Haredi world?
