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 Demi121xx, thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Sorry it's taken me awhile to respond to them. It means a great deal to a writer to know her/his writing is appreciated, and thanks a million for taking the time to let me know how highly you think of Flesh. I appreciate it very much, and wish you all the best.

Dear Sue, thank you for your positive words. And yes, the ending is abrupt but also, I think, realistic. Unresolved, like so much in life.

Milysomo, thanks for asking. There will not be another book about Pearl, but I did publish another book not long ago, called Fields of Exile (available on Amazon). Thank you for your interest in my writing.

Dear stsoto, thank you so much for your comment. I think you are very right about how so much in life never results in real closure, and that this is something we need to accept in  literature and beyond. I am really glad you enjoyed Flesh so much, and I appreciate your kind words about it. Wishing you all the best.

Dear uglypretty - this is a very thoughtful response of yours. I think often when we read we project onto the characters in books what we would like for ourselves. You are an unusual reader in understanding that Pearl has her own reality that may be okay for her.
