  Pnina Moed Kass has been living in Israel since 1968.
 
After teaching high school English for a number of years she decided to take a break and go back to writing.
Her writing background in the U.S. had been as a lyricist (ASCAP member), a staffer at the magazine, Opera News,
a publicist for a record company and a variety of other jobs that called for writing skills.
   
  The switch in Israel from teaching to writing worked out.
 
During the past few years she has authored children’s books, scripted a TV series, and done a lot of freelance writing both in Hebrew and in English. She had also garnered awards and recognition for her short stories and her contemporary novel set in the Middle East. Among them: the International Reading Award for Best YA Short Story, inclusion in the Cricket Magazine 25 year Anthology (“Celebrate”,) and other citations by librarians and teachers.
Her novel, REAL TIME, won the prestigious National Jewish Book Award, the Sydney Taylor Award and other accolades.
