About JoRa Books

JoRa Books is the creation of Karen Fisman.  Karen started making up her own Jewish holiday stories when her kids were in nursery school  After years of storytelling to nursery, kindergarten and grade school students, Karen decided that it was time to see her stories in print.  If you enjoy An Adventure in Latkaland, make sure to look for the books that will follow.

About the Author

nov 3 005

Once upon a time, Karen Fisman was an equities analyst.  She wrote a whole bunch of stuff for a whole lot of grownups.  But after her children were born, she realized that it was much more fun to write for kids.  And that’s what she has been doing ever since.

In addition to continuing the Jacob and Sarah series, Karen is currently working on The Medici Adventure, an story set in 15th century Florence and written for 9-12 year old readers.

Karen lives in Toronto with her husband, two kids and a shnoodle named Cocoa.

If you’d like Karen to visit your school, library or book event (which she loves to do, and is currently doing lots of), please contact her at info@jorabooks.com.
