Barbara Wizansky is from the United States and grew up in Boston, Massachusetts. She received her first degree in medieval history at Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. During the summer of graduation, she came to Israel for a six month adventure on a Zim Lines boat. On board she met her future husband, an Israeli returning home and the six month deadline disappeared. His work as an engineer took the family to live in a number of different countries, but they came back to Israel for good in 1973 before the Yom Kippur War. Along the way they had four children. Barbara studied Clinical Psychology, got her degree and has been working ever since, both in the public sector, and in private practice. She has been writing and publishing professionally throughout her career, and for the last few years has been enjoying writing fiction and poetry.
An elderly woman tosses and turns in her bed, bedeviled by memories of times long gone. That Certain Smile, allows her to relive those happy times, enjoying the experiences despite the dire warnings of her mother who was unable to come to terms with the freedoms allowed to youngsters in the land of Israel. Not like the old country. Barbara Wizansky remembers.More...
