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 the core of who I am — and always was — is a writer. 

My first novel, Fields of Exile, will be published this May by Dundurn Press. My previous book, 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. This book can be purchased on Amazon.

To find out more about me or my writing, please visit my website at http://www.noragold.com or follow me on twitter, facebook, and 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 175 first-rate Jewish-themed stories from all around the world, never before 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!

Really? Authors don't answer you when you compliment their work? How rude! How bizarre! I am so grateful that people are reading my work and then take the time to write me and say they like it. Thank you again.
