Born in Israel in 1974, Noa Greenberg is a graduate of the Sam Spiegel Film and Television School in Jerusalem. She wrote the script for Round Trip (2003), a TV movie that aired on HOT Channel 4 and was praised in Israel and at film festivals abroad. She also wrote the script for Out of Sight (2005), a feature film distributed to theaters and later aired by HOT TV. The movie was nominated for ten Ophir awards in 2005―Best Script among them―and won in two categories. In 2010 the script was bought by the American Time Life network and produced as a TV movie titled Lies in Plain Sight. In addition, Greenberg has developed a number of drama series for the main Israeli channels.
In the years 2001 to 2011, she lived in the United States, where her children were born. The encounter with quality American children’s and teenager literature spurred her to write Owled in Hebrew for older children.
