Raz Nadav was born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel. Inspired by the legendary peace activist Abie Nathan and his Voice of Peace radio station, he started writing short stories in his boyhood and also joined and supported Abie Nathan's activities as a member of the humanitarian organization Abie's Angels.
In his early 20's Nadav moved to the USA. He first lived in New York and then in Seattle. Few years later Nadav returned to Israel and started writing his books.
Between 2003 and 2006 Nadav has published two Hebrew books: The first titled "ha-Lev ha-ro`eh" ("The seeing heart"). It is a collection of short stories, some of which written in the magic realism genre touching on science fiction in its content.
The second book is "ha-Blondiniyot ha-`atsuvot shel hayai" ("The sad blondes of my life"). The novel follows a wild and reckless radio DJ involved in delusional and destructive relationships with three depressed blondes.
