The Year I Learned to Text; Why Am I Having Sex With a Muslim in My Basement?
2nd edition re-released as Part One of The Muslim Romance Trilogy

Julie is a celibate, post-menopausal conservative in the process of reinventing herself in Hollywood as an actor, realtor, and comedian.  In search of the perfect mate, she signs up for an online dating service where she is contacted by a Persian Muslim man named Ali--twenty-two years her junior.  Despite her misgivings, she and this boy with beautiful, black eyes begin a torrid affair, engaging in erotic meetings in her basement.

Between auditions, working on television, performing her stand-up routine, and driving lookie-loos through the Hollywood Hills, Julie rediscovers sexual expression on her nightly magic carpet ride with Ali. But things seem off about him--his anti-American pillow talk, the contradictions of his Islamic religion, his hypochondria, and the exact whereabouts of his apartment. When he invites her to join him to live in a cave in Afghanistan, Julie suspects things may have gone too far.

Her skeptical family members love giving her advice, but Julie does her own drunken midnight Googling research and learns all things Middle Eastern. In an effort to loosen from his grasp, Julie buys a second home to renovate--a foreclosed vintage cabin in the mountains to which she runs in her feeble attempts to find herself in between mini-breakups from the Muslim sociopath, who continually bounces back into her Hollywood bungalow basement.

In this romantic comedy wrought with honesty, Julie grapples with the addictive chemistry of great sex and the pitfalls of dating someone who might not be the perfect fit after all.

Part Two of The Muslim Romance Trilogy: JIHAD HONEYMOON IN HOLLYWOOD; Not Without My Dogs is AVAILABLE NOW!
