Blog posts about the Rabbi Aviva Cohen Mysteries and their author Rabbi Ilene Schneider


Thanks to the NJ Authors Network, I will be on several panels at libraries in NJ over the next few months. If you’re in the area, stop by. (And, yes, books will be for sale.)

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 7pm, EAST BRUNSWICK LIBRARY (2 Jean Walling Civic Center, East Brunswick):

Getting Published in the 21st Century: Writing Nonfiction
Meet five authors, John Grant (moderator), Randy M. Dannenfelser, Jasha Levi, and Ilene Schneider. Each has taken a different approach to publishing nonfiction. Discover how they did it and learn their tricks of the trade—from the importance of networking to what to put into a proposal. Enjoy this informative free program, then perhaps you’ll be inspired to go out and write that first book!

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER. 27, 7:00 PM, MOORESTOWN LIBRARY (111 West 2nd Street, Moorestown):

I’ve Finished My First Draft. Now What? Local authors share tips and information on getting published in today’s market
So you’ve finished the writing your book/story, or have you? What (if any) revision work needs doing? Where can you go for feedback? How will you know when it’s ready to send out, and where should you try first? Join New Jersey Authors, Jon Gibbs (moderator); Danielle Ackley-McPhail; Kristin Battestella; Jim ‘JJ’ Lair; Melinda Leigh and Ilene Schneider, for a fun, informative discussion on getting published in today’s market, and find out why typing ‘THE END’ is really just the beginning.

I will be on panels presenting the same topic, I’ve Finished My First Draft. Now What?, but with different participants on the following dates and places:

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER. 14, 6:00 PM, PRINCETON LIBRARY (65 Witherspoon St., Princeton)

TUESDAY, DEC. 4, 7:00 PM, OCEAN COUNTY LIBRARY (101 Washington St., Toms River)

In addition, I’ll be at the MEET THE AUTHORS NIGHT at the VOORHEES BRANCH OF THE CAMDEN COUNTY LIBRARY (203 Laurel Rd., Voorhees) on WEDNESDAY, OCT. 10, 7:00 PM.

I’m hoping to be even busier after the release of Unleavened Dead. If you would like to book me for your library, synagogue, church, mosque, temple, book club, JCC, social or charitable organization, whatever, please email me at






  1. Let me know when you will do Florida, I then will be there JT
