Sofiya Pasternack grew up surrounded by goats, and as an adult pets the neighbor's goats through the fence even though she probably shouldn't. When she’s not working at the hospital, she can be found enjoying Utah’s wild places, teaching her kids to make challah, and defending nice dragons. She should definitely be studying right now. Her debut novel ANYA AND THE DRAGON is kind of about Jewish farm girl Anya, and kind of about a dragon, but is mostly about Anya's favorite goat, Zvezda.
