Okay... Book Goat?

Yes! I love goats! And I love books! So I smooshed them together and SPLAT! The Book Goat! 

What's this website for?

My debut novel came out in 2019, and I made a part of my website dedicated to keeping track of the all the other 2019 debut novels, plus posting author interviews. I offered to do this for the 2020 debuts and figured, you know what? I think I need a separate website dedicated to just that. So here it is!

I'm Sofiya Pasternack! I'm a mental health professional, the highly-distractible author of Jewish MG and YA fantasy, and prone to oversharing gross medical stories. I enjoy speaking to crowds about writing and mental health.
