About The Author

Alison Leslie Gold’s wide-ranging body of fictional and nonfictional work spans the Holocaust and World War II, alcoholism and other forms of addiction, mental illness, the art of being a painter’s muse, and loss and love. Miep and Jan Gies, icons of goodness who sheltered Anne Frank, were never willing to have their entire story written until they met Alison. Gold has received the Best of the Best Award given by the American Library Association, the Anti-Defamation League’s Merit of Educational Distinction Award and a Christopher Award for affirming the highest values of the human spirit, among other awards and prizes. Her books have been adapted for stage and screen and have been translated into twenty-three languages. Her blog and more information about her work are available at
