Doris Iarovici grew up in New York City after arriving there at age 5 from Romania. She began writing shortly thereafter, and first published poetry and essays in Seventeen Magazine as a teenager. A graduate of Yale College and the Yale University School of Medicine, she has since divided her time between medicine and writing, publishing both fiction and non-fiction.

She works as a psychiatrist at Harvard University, and lives in Boston.
