Assaph Mehr

Assaph grew up in Israel, where wherever you dig you’ll find historical relics from the dawn of civilisation. His favourite spot was the port of Jaffa, where layers of cultures could be dug down to the ancient Egyptians, and the many citadels remaining from the crusades and Ottomans. He now lives in Sydney, Australia with his wife Julia, four kids and two cats. By day he is a software product manager, bridging the gap between developers and users, and by night he’s writing – he seems to do his best writing after midnight.
