Kaila Shabat, nee Katherine Rubin was born in London in 1947, and later studied languages in Europe. She arrived in Israel in 1967 as a volunteer after the Six-Day War. Her first book of poetry, ‘Back from Beyond,’ was published in 2008. Many of her poems, articles and short stories have been published in anthologies in Israel and abroad. In 2011, she expressed her vision for a better world, in a chapbook, entitled ‘Venus Empowered.’ For the last ten years she has been working on a chronicle, which she intends to publish as a series of books. Her greatest joy is to sing and record inspirational songs. She and her husband Amatzia live in a suburb of Tel Aviv, and have two grown children.
