David Klein is eighteen when he runs away from the poverty and orthodoxy of his Jewish home in Birmingham, England, for the bright lights and opportunities of New York. But trouble is in store.

Olga has a life-long love of writing and language. Her career has included several media appearances, and for five years she was editor of a prize-winning local magazine (c. 3000 subscribers), in which she wrote a regular viewpoint page on local issues and global concerns.

She likes nothing more than meeting people, reading and researching.

However, she has also written for children and in the humour genre. Still to come: a family saga crossing generations and continents, highlighting the need for more communication between families.  She has a B.A. Hons.
