Jean Meltzer studied dramatic writing at NYU Tisch and has earned numerous awards for her work in television, including a daytime Emmy. She spent five years in rabbinical school before her chronic illness forced her to withdraw, and her father told her she should write a book, just not a Jewish one because no one reads those. She is the author of THE MATZAH BALL and MR. PERFECT ON PAPER. “A love letter to Judaism and an utterly charming romance. With two irresistible leads, a scene-stealing bubbe, and plenty of holiday magic, The Matzah Ball is a luminous celebration of all types of love, threaded with the message that everyone is worthy of it.” —Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of The Ex Talk

From the author who brought you the beloved THE MATZAH BALL (soon to be a major motion picture) , comes another irresistibly joyful romantic comedy about a Jewish matchmaker whose bubbe – with the help of a very charming news anchor – thrusts her search for love onto the national stage in Jean Meltzer’s MR. PERFECT ON PAPER (MIRA Books; Trade Paperback Original; $15.99).

Meltzer bases her sweetly funny romcom on her own interfaith Happily Ever After love story and the classic Yiddishism “man plans and God laughs.” MR. PERFECT ON PAPER is charming, romantic, and truly delightful! Don’t miss this program!
