Ani Tuzman


Ani Tuzman is a novelist, an award-winning poet, and a writing mentor.

Ani grew up on a back-road chicken farm, the daughter of Holocaust survivors. At the age of eight, she began writing to an invisible companion, filling page after page with her questions about a world darkened by the shadow of the Holocaust. But there was also the ecstasy of rain, the dance of the willow, the gleaming stars. Writing about it all—in the silent, unconditional embrace of nature—became Ani’s path to the light.

Being awakened to the practice of meditation proved the perfect complement to writing, revealing a direct path to the inner wellsprings of love and creativity.

Along the way, Tuzman became captivated by legends of an eighteenth-century Eastern European mystic rabbi known as the Baal Shem Tov. A Kabbalist, he taught that divine sparks are hidden everywhere and it is one’s sacred duty to find and free the energy in these sparks whose essence is love. When Ani turned fifty, she experienced an inner call to write about this spiritual master. Her recent literary, historical novel The Tremble of Love: A Novel of the Baal Shem Tov, is the response to that call.

Ani lives in New England, where she savors long walks in the changing seasons, meditation, and inspiring others to find and free their voices.
