Omer is a novelist, screenwriter, writing teacher, and journalist who writes for Israel’s most prominent publications. Born and raised in Tel Aviv, Omer is married and a father. After completing his service as a staff member of the IDF newspaper Bamahane, Omer took a job at Yediot Aharonot, the largest newspaper in Israel. His first article, about going on 30 dates in 30 days, was a huge hit and Omer became known for his signature genre of humourous articles. In 2015 he quit his job as a senior editor at Yediot to pursue his dream to write the first Israeli romantic comedy. Published by Modan, it sold out five days after hitting stores - a record for a debut novel in Israel. In its first week, the book was #4 on the Israeli best seller list, climbing to #1 two weeks later, which is also unprecedented for a debut novel in Israel. It ultimately became the #1 prose book sold in Israel in 2017 and received the highest price ever paid for movie rights in the history of the country. Needless to say, Omer is now a full time writer, working on two movies: Lahutz Hatuna to be directed by Guri Alfi, and Meohav Yerushalmi, to be directed by Shai Kapon. He’s also working on his second book, scheduled to be published by Modan in 2019.
