My guest today is a Manhattan-based writer who works in many genres—fiction, non-fiction, musical theatre, and children’s literature. She draws much of her inspiration from the incredible stories she heard growing up about her family’s remarkable experiences.
She fictionalized her grandmother’s story of a young mother surviving the Russian Revolution in a historical novel, then moved to a nonfiction release, which spotlights a daughter’s perspective on a bygone era and a man who struggled before ultimately achieving financial and personal success.
Her latest book is a humorous personal recollection of the challenging year she and her family spent while following their dream to live abroad.
Her passion for the arts and storytelling originated in ballet and drama, and often, relates to her Russian Jewish heritage. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Kyra Robinov.
