Oren was born in Beer-Sheeba, Israel and has been living in Bagsværd, Denmark for many years. His fate, therefore, seems to involve cities with long names that have tricky pronunciations and start with the letter B. If this were true of a character in one of his stories, it might have literary significance, but probably not. Aside from short stories, Oren has dabbled in flash fiction, poetry, film and musical theatre.
