Dan Sofer's award-winning thrillers blend mystery, adventure, and humor to explore timely issues in Jewish life, lore, and legend. Many of his stories are set in Jerusalem.
Born in Johannesburg, Dan moved to Jerusalem in 2001 - from the cradle of humankind to the cradle of monotheism.

Along the way, he studied archaeology in the City of David, drove a tank in the Jordan Valley, delved into the Talmud in the Judean hills, represented an entire continent in the International Bible Contest, and swam with tiger sharks (unintentionally) in Mozambique.
Dan lives in Israel with a supermodel, a princess, and a mermaid.
