Noga Sklar was born in Tiberias, Israel, in 1952. She grew up in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and lived for 30 years in Rio de Janeiro, a city she eventually left behind to take refuge in Serenity Valley, a paradise among the mountains of Petropolis. Noga met her American husband Alan Sklar in 2004, through JDate, the American Jewish dating site. This meeting gave new impetus to her life and literary career, inspiring her first novel, No Degrees of Separation. She now lives in Greenville, SC, where she moved with her husband in October 2014. Noga has 12 books published in Portuguese. Her titles in English include Welcome to America (2015) and the upcoming Tough Love (2017).
