Jerusalem, Israel

I was born in London, Uk,  Both sets of grandparents were immigrants from Russia from where they had fled due  to the pogroms against the Jews. I studied physiotherapy at St Marys Hospital, in London and worked in a school for children with special needs and then in an adult brain injury unit and geriatric psychiatric center. I immigrated to Israel in 1998 with my husband and now live in Jerusalem where I work on a voluntary basis.

I have visited India with my husband on several occasions and we both have a deep love of the country and its people. My husband’s grandfather had, at one time, lived for twelve years in Bombay.

My entry into the world of poetry, in 1997, came as a great surprise to me as English had always been my poorest subject at school. Iwas intending to drawer a picture of waves when visiting the coast but a poem seemed to write itself instead. Since then my work has been published in various journals such as  ‘Voices’ and ‘H2E’   in Israel,  ‘Yated’ newspaper in Israel, Uk and South Africa ; ‘The Deronda Review’ in Israel and USA.; ‘Poetica’ internet journal in USA and ‘Leaves’ in India . I have also published a book of my poems titled ‘Dancing WithTheWind’ and amin the process of putting together a second collection.
