Dorit Sasson writes for a wide range of print and online publications, including The Huffington Post, and The Writer, and speaks at conferences, libraries, and community centers. She is the author of a featured chapter in Pebbles in the Pond: Transforming the World One Person at a Time, the latest installment of that best-selling series, and the host of the global radio show Giving Voice to Your Story. She lives in Pittsburgh, PA with her husband and two children.
At age nineteen, Dorit Sasson tried making the status quo work as a college student, but was terribly unhappy. Leaving New York City for the Israel Defense Forces assured that she would have put some distance between herself and her neurotic, worry wart of a mother.
Accidental Soldier is an inspirational story of a heroine’s journey of finding her voice and inner strength by breaking away from her mother’s clutches. She fulfills her intent to achieve emotional independence. Through narration, sensory details and authentic dialogue, Sasson “shows” the struggles of the cultural adjustment to a foreign militaristic mentality and her eventual triumph.
