About the Author

Lilian Gafni writes with passion about the experiences of displaced Jewish populations because she experienced it herself. Born in Cairo, Egypt, she attended the non-denominational French Catholic School, St. Vincent de Paul. Jews had lived peacefully for centuries in Egypt; however, a dangerous current began coursing through the city that threatened the lives of Jews. Her parents moved the family in 1951 to the newly formed Jewish country of Israel, where they hoped to raise their children in peace and safety. As have many Jews before her, Lilian had to adapt to a new life, a new country, and a new language. She served in the requisite two years in the Israel Defense Forces, which sent her to guard a Kibbutz (collective farm) in the region of the Negev. There she met American-born Joel, who later became her husband. After their marriage, they moved to the United States to his home state of California, where they raised their two children. Lilian is the author of Flower from Castile Trilogy, Hello Exile, and Living a Blissful Marriage: 24 Steps to Happiness.
