What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
An episode I saw on Myth Busters where they showed that elephants are afraid of mice.
I never climb the red slide. It is too high. It goes all the way up and into the sky.

Hagit R. Oron, an award-winning author, became an avid reader the minute she learned to read.
During her teens, she worked as a librarian in a public library just to be close to books, where she soon found out that she has book-matchmaking skills, that is connecting the right book to the right reader.
Surrounded by all those great titles inspired her to start writing. She daydreamed her first stories while commuting to the library.
Everything changed when she discovered computer programming and realized that she’s an excellent coder. So, for many years, she wrote tens of thousands of code lines. Most of them began with an if.
But fiction was bubbling inside her and after two decades of coding, it suddenly erupted in the form of picture books. She had to give in.
Now she devotes her days to writing adorable stories for kids. She utilizes her coding experience to bury little Easter eggs in her books, by telling parts of the story with illustrations and by hiding messages aimed at the adult reader inside the text.
It’s her book-matchmaking skills that make her stories appeal to a broad audience.
