Haya Leah Molnar

Born in Bucharest, Romania, Haya Leah Molnar's Jewish identity was hidden from her in order to protect her against anti-Semitism. When she was ten, she and her family escaped the Communist regime and emigrated to Israel, and later to the US. A former copywriter and creative director in advertising, she now writes full time in New York City. In addition to having an eclectic taste for reading other authors, she loves designing her own line of jewelry, gardening, traveling, and kayaking. This is her first book.
