Evelyn Chenkin (nee Freedman) was born in London. Writing and a devotion to the Jewish people have always been important components of Evelynís life. In 1946 Evelyn was sent on a secret mission to France to help in the search for hidden Jewish children, which she later documented in a book entitled Gathering the Remnants. In 1948 she returned to London, married Eric Chenkin and had three children. She began writing for children, educating them through adventure stories to gain an interest in Israel and their heritage. Her many stories, including her book Dina and Dovís Adventures in Israel, were translated into many languages and read by children worldwide. Throughout the years Evelyn has been active on behalf of Jewish Zionist and communal organizations in Great Britain. In 1983 Evelyn and her husband joined their two daughters in Israel. There, as chairman of the Liaison Committee of English-Speaking Groups, she brought into WIZO immigrants from all English-speaking countries. Living in Israel inspired Evelyn to channel her enthusiastic love of people, places, nature and Israel into writing verse Ė Just for You.
