Brook Cottage Books is thrilled to have Kfir Luzzatto as the Author in the Spotlight. Read all about Kfir and his book. There's a competition too so read on! 

Kfir was born and raised in Italy, and moved to Israel as a teenager. He acquired the love for the English language from his father, a former U.S. soldier and WWII veteran, a voracious reader and a prolific writer.

With a PhD in chemical engineering and a long family history that he needs to live up to, Kfir work as a patent attorney and heads the patent law firm that was established by his great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869. Kfir lives in Omer, Israel, with his full-time partner, Esther, their four children, Michal, Lilach, Tamar and Yonatan, and the dog Elvis.

Writing has always been Kfir's passion and for almost four years he wrote a weekly "Patents" column in Globes (Israel’s financial newspaper), which also yielded his only (if he can help it) non-fiction book, THE WORLD OF PATENTS, (a not-so-boring tale of what patents are about, in Hebrew), which was published in 2002 by Globes Press.

Kfir loves writing short stories but has too many novels waiting to be written (and possibly not enough years ahead of him to write them all), so now he mostly writes full-length fiction. His other passion is working with other authors on stories he loves and that's how he wound up serving on the editorial board of The Harrow Press as Anthology Editor.

You can read about Kfir's books here. He loves them all, but never had greater fun than when working on “HAVE BOOK WILL TRAVEL”, a YA fantasy that he wrote together with his son, Yonatan.
Lets find out about Kfir's new book ExtraLife Inc...................

"David Wolfson, a Jerusalem scientist, claims to have found the cure for cancer. He and his wife, Tamara, seek the help of Richard Lunz, a Tel Aviv attorney, to fight the powerful bureaucrats who want to appropriate David's invention.

Richard can’t resist the temptation to participate in what looks like the discovery of the century and it takes a first death to make him doubt that something in the project is not what it seems.

And then other people die.

Following clues that take him to Eastern Europe and to America, Richard finds more answers than he wished for. But he just can't stop looking."
I think you will agree, that is stunning book cover! Here's a little excerpt.................
 "I had the feeling that she was playing a game with me, and winning all the time. She was winning because I didn’t know what the game was and you can’t win if you don’t know the game and its rules. So I had to find out what the game was and whether it had rules.
My cell-phone rang. It was Sarah.
“Richard?” Her voice sounded worried and unusually quiet.
“Yes, honey. What’s up?”
“Are you still in Paris?”
“Yes. My plane doesn’t leave until tomorrow morning. Why?”
“Come home, Richard. Please. Just come home.”
“What’s the matter? What’s happened?” I was suddenly worried. I had never heard Sarah begging me to come home. She knew I would come as soon as possible anyway.
“Nothing. Nothing happened. It’s just  . . . I have a bad feeling. Please come home soon.”
“I’m on my way, baby. Don’t worry. I’ll be there in no time. My flight leaves early in the morning.”
“Good. I’m waiting. Bye.”
“Bye . . .”
She was gone. This was the strangest phone call I had ever received from Sarah. Everything seemed to have become strange, weird. Dangerously so. I stopped a taxi and went straight to my hotel. I packed and got ready for an early start in the morning. That night I barely slept. Suddenly, I felt the urge to get out of there and back home where I belonged."

As a special treat to the readers of the blog, Kfir Luzzatto has very kindly offered to give out 5 ecopies of his book. All you have to do to win a copy is leave a comment below and the first five people to comment will get a copy. Go on! What have you got to lose!?
