Coming soon: BENI'S WAR

There’s a new book coming! Beni’s War, the story of Motti’s younger brother from The Six-Day Hero will be available in 2020! I can’t wait to share this book with you. Unlike Motti, who practically wrote his book himself, Beni was much harder to write about. He’s shy and sensitive. It took us a while to get to know each other. But the kid notices everything. And when his home is suddenly attacked on Yom Kippur and his family has to evacuate, Beni quickly realizes that nothing will ever be the same.

With Motti on the front lines, Beni and his family struggle with fear for their beloved brother and son. As the war drags on, Beni becomes convinced that his brother needs him to return home safely. The crazy thing is, Beni just might be right.

To save Motti, 12 year-old Beni will embark on the trip of a lifetime. With school bullies who have their own scars, a small but mighty dog named Goliath, and a reckless driver with a heart of gold, Beni’s War tells the story of an Israeli family through the series of wars Israel fought.



My first middle grade novel is coming out in 2017! Just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War, SIX DAY HERO tells the story of Motti, a 12-year-old boy living in West Jerusalem in 1967.

This book came about after I discovered there was nothing in print (fiction or non-fiction) for elementary and middle school readers about modern-day Israel (basically since its founding in 1948 until today.) Israel is in the news so often, everyone has strong feelings about what's going on there, and yet there's nothing about what led to this point. There's nothing for kids to learn from but the latest headlines and the waves of opinion that follow.

I thought, this is ridiculous, someone should do something about this! And, then...oh, wait. Me. I should do something about this.

So I did. And you can read it in just a few month! SIX DAY HERO. Stay tuned...
