A first date at a restaurant in Jerusalem.

The evening went very well: romantic ambience, flowing conversation, chemistry. The second date flopped. There was no third date. I wondered why that first date had seemed so promising. Was it all in the location? What if a particular restaurant had special properties that guaranteed a great date?

These musings led to a short story. A few years later I decided to turn the story into a novel. Six years after that, after a number of drafts, I completed A Love and Beyond.
