Mihal Levy used to collect degrees as a hobby. After receiving her B.S. and M.S. degrees, she worked as a psychotherapist and research scientist before continuing her hobby of degree-collecting. Two years into her Ph.D program in neuropsychology, Mihal decided to hang up her lab coat and give up her cushy office to focus on her first love, writing. And has never looked back. (Well, maybe a few times to make sure she wasn’t being followed by ex-patients.)
Mihal has written for various publications and public figures, including Today Show travel guru Peter Greenberg, Highlights For Children, Starry Constellation Magazine, The Jewish Journal, Jewish Family and Tribe Magazine. She has also written comedy for and performed with several renowned L.A. area sketch comedy troupes, including L.A. Connection and ACME Comedy Theatre. She now finds comedy in motherhood and performs in the comfort of her own living room.
Mihal’s fanbase is widespread, from her husband and son to seven-year-olds in dental offices everywhere (thanks to Highlights For Children).
She enjoys her life as writer, freelancer and homeschooling mom. She lives with her husband, son and her son’s Lego collection in Los Angeles, California.
