Princess Naomi, her mothers, and the dragon are all characters from the Mangoverse novel series. Their story begins in The Second Mango, with Queen Shulamit figuring out how to be a queen at age twenty, and looking for family, love, and her own strength. It continues in Climbing the Date Palm, as she and her partner wonder how two girls are ever going to come up with a royal heir–but maybe magic can help? And in A Harvest of Ripe Figs, Queen Shulamit shows that even with the baby princess strapped to her chest she’s able to solve mysteries and protect her subjects from crime.

Naomi gets to be the star of the show in the short story “The Generous Princess”, part of  the Tales from Perach collection.
