About the Author: Atara Twersky

Atara Twersky is an attorney and lives in NYC with her husband and three children. Atara was inspired to write Curlee Girlee by her youngest daughter.  She hopes it will inspire other curlee and non-curlee girls to love all things about them that make them unique.Atara loves fashion and clothes, surfing, skiing, and swimming with her kids. Her dream job would allow her to go to sleep at 4 a.m. and wake up at noon … unfortunately, until the kids are at least 20, she doesn’t think that can happen! She loves water parks and roller coasters—she laughs so hard that her kids say she has as much fun, or more, than they do! Atara’s favorite poem is “IF” by Rudyard Kipling. She has been reciting it from memory since she was ten years old.

The thing that surprised Atara most while Curlee Girlee was how naturally the words came to her. It had been brewing in her head for years (since her little curlee girlee was about 3 years old—she is now 6). She was equally surprised by how much her children loved and related to the book and how proud they are of her. Just the other day Atara’s nine year old son said, “Mommy, you writing your book has taught me that if I want to do something, I should just do it. You never wrote a book before, and now suddenly you have a book that everyone is reading!”


“I loved Curlee Girlee, she is adorable and feisty and her empowerment message really resonates. As a fellow curly girl, I can really relate!”
