Author bio

I am an avid reader and writer who dreams of publishing three books: a supernatural novel, a collection of short stories, and poetry. I've been writing since I was 10, first in my native Russian. I wrote short stories, poems, and even one novel. At 22, I stopped writing at all, feeling that my pieces were not good enough. I resumed writing at 34, now in English, and thanks to the massive support of my friends on Instagram, I've been able not to quit so far. As for now, I am a published poet ("Mind", poetry anthology, 2020) and a published reviewer ("The Fall and Rise of Chimeras", seasonal of Ink Gladiators Press, 2021). Examples to follow in writing (in my opinion) are Julio Cortazar, Franz Kafka, Friedrich Nietzsche, Vladimir Nabokov, Eugene Ionesco, Sylvia Plath, and Osip Mandelshtam.
