About the Author

Yona Zeldis McDonough is the author of Two of a Kind, her soon-to-be released fifth novel, a second-chance-at-love story between a seemingly mismatched widow and widower. To read the first chapter, arrange a book club visit, or just to say hi, please contact Yona via her website or her Facebook fan pages, which she hopes you'll "like."

Yona’s fourth novel, A Wedding in Great Neck, was described as, “A confection that is not only a page-turner but a poignant view of family life...” by Adriana Trigiani and Booklist added, “McDonough has assembled a touching, airy novel that manages to meld the concerns of family members spanning four generations into a delightfully well-written story…With an authorial voice that switches deftly between impulsive teen-speak and a stately matriarch’s flashbacks, McDonough’s skill is to be commended. A tender, clever story with emotional heft.” A Wedding in Great Neck will soon appear in Norway.

Yona is also an award-winning children’s book author with twenty-two books to her credit and has been the Fiction Editor at Lilith Magazine for over a dozen years. She lives with her husband, two children and small yappy dogs in Brooklyn, New York.

Praise for Two of a Kind

"McDonough crafts a complex romantic tale of two families, skillfully developing multidimensional characters. . .Multiple points of view show the complications of dating for parents, the compromise of interfaith romance, and the unforeseen consequences when lives get out of balance. Readers will delight in this layered tale of friendship and love."—Publishers Weekly

"Honest and engrossing, this novel explores the intricacies of unexpected attraction, falling in love after losing a spouse and combining two resistant families. The characters are complex and captivating, adding depth to an already engaging plot, which culminates in a surprising twist. Four and a half stars."—Romantic Times 

“Every now and then I stumble upon a truly delightful piece of women’s fiction. Two of a Kind falls into that category. . .A one of a kind tale.”—Romance Reviews

The eagle flys over camp and goes into a dive, just before hitting the ground the eagle sets down the kit carfully, then flys away. The kit lays very still it's eyes closed, it's flank rising slowly up and down.
