A Girl, A Demon,
black bird, blue road
Pesah has lived with leprosy for years, and the twins have spent most of that time working on a cure. Then Pesah has a vision: The Angel of Death will come for him on Rosh Hashanah, just one month away.
So Ziva takes her brother and runs away to find doctors who can cure him. But when they meet and accidentally free a half-demon boy, he suggests paying his debt by leading them to the fabled city of Luz, where no one ever dies--the one place Pesah will be safe.
They just need to run faster than The Angel of Death can fly...

So Black Bird, Blue Road is my third published book, and the very first one that got a star from a trade review! A Kirkus star is totally incredible and something I was NOT expecting!! It feels pretty great to have a really positive trade review, but even better to have a trade who seems to really get what the book is about!

Friendos, I was still reeling from the Kirkus starred review when I got this Publishers Weekly starred review. AAAHHHH! One starred review was pretty amazing, but TWO? Ridiculous. Amazing. Absurd. Mind-boggling. I'm so grateful that people are loving this book (because I love it too!). Check out that review HERE!
Being a debut is cool, but something that might be even cooler is the feeling when I found out I sold a novel separate from my first deal! Two deals, three novels. That's a cool feeling!!
It's also cool that this is the first novel I sold on proposal!
