Dvora Mosenzon (later Omer) was born in 1932 in Kibbutz Ma'oz Haim in Mandatory Palestine. Her parents divorced when she was a child, and when she was 11 years old, her mother was killed in a training accident, in the Hagana, a pre-state military organization. Her father, Moshe Mosenzon, was a newspaper editor who served in the Jewish Brigade. In his absence, Dvora was raised by the kibbutz. She was married to Shmuel Omer, with whom she had three children.

Omer began writing while she was a teacher, and continued with many books that reflect the developing state and culture of Israel. Most of her books are for young adults, and have been translated into many languages. She died on May 2, 2013, aged 80, at Kfar Ma'as.
