Alex Paz-Goldman

Alex Paz-Goldman was born at Kibbutz HaMa'apil in 1955 to Holocaust survivor parents, and grew up in Ramat Gan. He currently lives in Tel Aviv. He has a BSc in computer science from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, and an MA in child and youth culture from Tel Aviv University. In his life and work he combines technology and literature: he is a children's author, and has worked as development manager at a hi-tech telecom company. Paz-Goldman has published books for youth and a collection of short stories; he has also published short stories in Einayim, the most popular children's magazine in Israel, and in other magazines.

Adventures in a Small Town, Paz-Goldman's first book (with Iris Argaman), has been adapted for the stage. Both this and his second book, The Lost Spy and the Green Dress, are recommended for youth by the Israel Ministry of Education.
