Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Israel. Israel is a melting pot of people from all over the world. Being exposes to many languages, culture, music instilled in me the love for the above. I love writing about different characters representing different cultures. I write about the amazing life I had growing up in a newly born state. The camaraderie, the care for one another was one of a kind. I loved hearing stories of wars and struggle from the adults and I asked a lot of questions. I incorporate those stories in my books.
When did you first start writing?
Back in 2006. But I wrote poetry since I was 14.
