I'm originally from Evanston, Illinois and moved to Israel at the tender age of 21. I started out living on a Kibbutz in the south, moved to a development town in the north, and I now live in Jerusalem. I am very happily married and have three wonderful children and a brand new daughter-in-law (grandchildren forthcoming, hopefully).
Aside from my passion for chocolate (I'm a gourmet, not an addict), I love to bake, make my own ice cream and read too much television. My "day job" is as a Resource Development writer for the non-profit sector. My hobby is book reviews and musings about books and literature (so far), which I publish on my blog here http://drchazan.blogspot.com/
I have been writing on-line content (reviews and articles of all kinds) since about 1998. Since 2013, I've been specializing in writing book reviews. I receive ARCs from NetGalley, the website Curious Book Fans, LibraryThing, Smashwords, Edelweiss and most recently from BookBrowse (my reviews there are exclusive and available only to site members, unless they are featured reviews). Aside from this blog, and the reviews on BookBrowse and Curious Book Fans, I also blog for the Times of Israel on-line newspaper.
