My parents escaped the holocaust in Poland into the far reaches of Kazakhstan where I was born at the end of WWII. Before my first birthday a Kazakh clan had offered a bride price for me. This and other stories fuelled my imagination, prompting me to write. Soon after I turned one, we all returned to Poland and stayed there until changes in the communist regime encouraged Jews to migrate. In Australia I attended high school, then Monash University, completed medical degree and became family doctor. For many years I had published travelogues and short stories in a weekly magazine, ‘Medical Observer’. To improve my writing, I have completed various writing courses at Writers Victoria. Last October I had my first book published, ‘Flight of the Swallow’, now available in Avenue bookstore and at www.booktopia.com.au
