Through the glass door, about to enter the Mishkenot Sha’ananim Conference Centre I could see a table covered with Ilene Prusher‘s first novel, Baghdad Fixer. I was so excited to get my hands on a copy and then of course get it signed.
I bought my copy and made my way into the main hall. I didn’t recognize any of the people sharing thoughts, laughing and enjoying their wine.
I’ve been a fan of Ilene’s for a couple of years now. Since June 2010 when I attended a writing workshop she led. Last year I attended another one and about a month ago Ilene did me the great benefit of introducing me and initiating my current writing group.
