A fairy tale starring a bisexual prince!

Climbing the Date Palm is a fairy-tale novel due out from Prizm Books on July 2 (eBook) and in print late July. If you like labor rights, same-sex romance, dragons, shapeshifters, and a celebration of food and family, stay tuned!

Queen Shulamit is eager to help Kaveh, the youngest prince of a neighboring country, when his father throws his engineer boyfriend in jail for leading his workers in protest over underpaid wages. But if she can’t find a peaceful solution that will keep everybody happy, the two countries could wind up at war.

Climbing the Date Palm is the sequel to The Second Mango, in which Queen Shulamit finds strength, love, and family when her quest for a girlfriend turns into a rescue mission instead.
