Alexander Tatievsky was born in Russia (then the Soviet Union) in 1981, in the city of Yekaterinburg and immigrated with his family to Israel in 1990 for permanent residency. He served three years of mandatory military service in the IDF and later studied in the academy (BSc in Aerospace and MBA). He is an engineer, married and the father of two lovely children.
When Winds Blow West is his first foray in the deep ocean of fiction literature. Nevertheless, much thought has been invested in presenting the emotionally difficult issues of current affairs.
His previous experience in published writing was in the realm of professional non-fiction; a modest contribution to Wiley’s Encyclopedia of Aerospace Engineering (First published: 15 December 2010, Print ISBN: 9780470754405).
