After a successful career in childhood and adult education, Sophia Bar-Lev turned her attention towards fulfilling her long held dream of authoring women's novels and inspirational books.

A lifelong love of Italy and all things Italian inspired the setting for her recently published novel, PASTA, POPPY FIELDS AND PEARLS.

Sophia is married and the mother of four children and seven grandchildren. She loves to travel, to meet people from different cultures and backgrounds and, of course, is an avid reader.

She also loves to cook and bake, and frequently tries her hand at creating original recipes which have become legendary with her family.

“They look so relaxed, so happily engaged in the present moment, these four women drinking cappuccinos and savoring the creamy cannolis.”
Sophia Bar-Lev, Pasta, Poppy Fields and Pearls

“We're a lively, healthy and active group. This doesn't happen to the likes of us.”
Sophia Bar-Lev, Pizza & Promises

“Loyalty was their way of life.”
Sophia Bar-Lev, Pizza & Promises

“Fiction has been maligned for centuries as being "false," "untrue," yet good fiction provides more truth about the world, about life, and even about the reader, than can be found in non-fiction.”
Clark Zlotchew

“A fiction writer is nothing more then the ambassador of an alternative world of their own design. Their success dwells in how many people their work entices to relocate”
Carl Henegan, Darkness Left Undone
