Author Biography

Eran Gadot is an award winning author. Gadot is married and a father to three children and two cats. He is proud to have ADHD and loves the fact that writing is the only way for him to focus on one thing. In his younger years he owned Pet Coffee, the first coffee place for dogs and their owners. He then opened a new coffee place, No Bill, where customers were free to pay as they please. He was the co-founder and CEO of a small high-tech company which was later sold to Playtech.
He is currently one of the owners of an advertising agency, works as the head of the creative department. His love for sports got him to be owner of a sports live scores website and an enthusiastic tennis player. He also has helped producing several independent films.

Few words from Gadot:

"I can't remember a time when I didn't write. I write about everything. As far as I'm concerned what isn't written down simply isn't important. Writing is in my blood. The words inside me are constantly trying to burst out, however much I may try to focus on other things.

My greatest dream was always to write a book for children, whose honesty and innocence constantly overwhelm me. It's thanks to children that my own inner child is sustained and never ceases to make his presence felt.

When my son started sixth grade and embarked on the journey known as adolescence my urge to write a book for children became impossible to ignore. His experiences granted me inspiration as well as fantastic ideas for my book.

As I began to write, the reactions of my son and his friends totally amazed me and I understood that I was on the right path. I completed my book, which became the first in a series of six. The responses from my readers renew my energy daily and strengthen my deep motivation to continue to write.

For me, writing is not a hobby but a vocation. I simply have to write. And I still feel like a boy, with a tremendous desire to realize my dreams, break new ground and transform the impossible into the possible."

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

Supernatural Hero and the Witches is a young adult and preteen supernatural fantasy written by Eran Gadot, illustrated by Salit Krac, and translated by Gilah Kahn-Hoffman. Andy's a nerd who also happens to see ghosts. He sees them everywhere, but the one who matters the most is his grandfather. He's really more like a friend in many ways, and is one of the few people Andy feels he can discuss just about everything with. Andy's new and very popular girlfriend, Zoe, has a problem that she doesn't want to hear about. Her mother's been transformed into a witch, and she's made an evil-smelling soup for Zoe and Andy to eat. Zoe gets angry if Andy brings the subject up, but her mother's blank white eyes are proof. Andy and Tom, his best friend who's even geekier than Andy, must find a way to free Zoe's mom from her possession.

Eran Gadot's young adult and preteen supernatural fantasy, Supernatural Hero and the Witches, is zany, exciting, action-packed and heartwarming all at once. It's also a marvelous coming of age story about an ordinary yet very special kid who's got his feet in two different worlds. I loved Salit Krac's illustrations and found myself looking forward to the drawings that began many of the chapters. They fitted perfectly and enhanced the mood and spirit of the story. Sometimes Gadot's writing hits a higher realm; one where I had to stop, reread, and simply think about a paragraph or scene, as I had to with the passage in chapter 26, when Andy is talking with Victor, his imaginary friend, and Andy has what "feels like a holy moment" when Victor tells him about the Land of Imaginary Friends. But it's one of many magical moments in a story that is often transcendent and, at times, sublime.

This is the second book in the Andy, the Supernatural Hero series. You don't have to read the first book to enjoy this one, but you'll probably find, as I did, that you won't want to miss out on reading the first one either and will be looking forward to the third in the series. Supernatural Hero and the Witches is most highly recommended.
