About

Hi! I’m Nora Gold, a writer, and also the creator and editor of an online literary journal called Jewish Fiction .net. I’ve done several different things besides writing so far (activism, teaching, research, and was even a therapist), but most importantly at present, I am a writer. 

My first novel, Fields of Exile, was recently published!  http://www.noragold.com/portfolio/fields-of-exile/ Check it out and happy reading!

My previous book, Marrow and Other Stories - http://www.noragold.com/portfolio/marrow-and-other-stories/ -won one of the Canadian Jewish Book Awards, and also was shortlisted for the Danuta Gleed Award, a prize for the best first short story collection in Canada.

To find out more about me or my writing, please visit my website at http://www.noragold.com or follow me on twitter (@NoraGold), facebook, or LinkedIn.

You can also read (for free) the online journal I edit, at http://www.jewishfiction.net/index.php/current-issue/. So far we’ve published over 200 first-rate Jewish-themed stories from all around the world that were originally written in English or eleven other languages, but have never before been published in English.

I am delighted you’ve come to visit my Profile page on Wattpad. I think Wattpad is a wonderful initiative, and I am honoured to be one of its Featured authors. I hope you enjoy my novella, Flesh, and I appreciate your taking the time to read and comment on it. Thanks in advance, and Enjoy!

Dear therideoflife, thank you so much for your wonderful feedback and comments, and for how much thought you obviously put into understanding this story and its characters. I really appreciate this, and also that you took the time to write me what you thought and felt about "Flesh." Many, many thanks, therideoflife! (I like your name, by the way.) And yes, "The Kiss" by Klimt is fabulous art. Wishing you the best of luck with your own writing, and have a great weekend!
