Kyra’s historical novel, RED WINTER, was published in 2016. Based on her grandmother’s experience during the Bolshevik Revolution, it is set in 1920 far eastern Siberia. She is currently working on a sequel, chronicling the family’s survival of the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 in Yokohama, Japan. A lyricist/librettist, Kyra’s musical, TO DANCE, inspired by the true story of a Russian Jewish ballet dancer and his clash with the Soviet authorities, was featured at the NY International Fringe Festival in 2015. Children’s books include: MATT McFLACK & HIS FLYAWAY KITE; DANCE OF THE SEASONS; and THE FOLLY OF POLLY THE PENGUIN. Coming soon: URGE TO ROME, Kyra’s memoir about the year she and her family moved to the Eternal City under the guise of an educational and cultural once-in-a-lifetime experience for all.
