Fiction more real than journalism

I wrote a guest post for A Book Blogger’s Diary this week. The post, headlined “Fiction more real than journalism,” explains why I turned from journalism about the Middle East to fiction, as a better way of explaining the profound things I had learned in more than a decade here in Jerusalem.

The Wanderlust and Words blog has a post about how my writing, in particular my second novel A Grave in Gaza, has channeled my traumatic experiences as a war correspondent and placed them on the page in the form of shocking moments for my characters.

Murder by the Book Mystery Bookstore blogs about my first novel The Collaborator of Bethlehem, which it calls “a thought-provoking, very different look at a community in crisis.”
