November Jewish Carnival

This month's Jewish carnival was kindly hosted by author Yael Shahar. I'm so pleased I took part. See my interview with author Jennifer Lang at the link below. There's more interviews for you to enjoy every month. Authors coming up in the next few months include: Miriam Drori, Daniel Sofer, Katherine Locke, Mel Rosenberg, Julie Gray, Nadia Jacobson, and Janice Weizman. There's something new all the time, so do check back. You can also feel free to suggest an author and I'll do my best to include your choice on my site.
