Vera Freudmann came to Israel from England in 1977 with her husband and four small children. Her first job in Israel was as typist for an author who gave her a lot of editorial freedom and a taste for writing. She has had both fiction and non-fiction published. For many years she taught English to adults, largely in hi-tech, and has been involved in English drama in Israel for some time. Now she also enjoys letting her many grandchildren fill her life and, when they allow, writing.
