She / Her

I was born in the Soviet Union in 1970 in a small town on the river bank located near the Black Sea port of Odessa. After finishing school I worked at the local bread factory helping my widowed mother since 1975. In 1991, my mom, me and my sister left for Israel, where I lived for approximately 20 years, married there and had two children. In 2009, we all moved to Canada, where I studied Health Information Management and Health Administration and worked at the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.

Being a child, I quickly learned to read, which became my passion. I used to read international classical novels, adventures, historical fiction, fairy tales, folk, myths and many other various literature included in the school program. This taught me to understand the beauty of written language, developed my imagination, provided me with wide general knowledge and enchanted deep thinking abilities. Thus I never tried to write by myself.

During COVID all of us passed various changes, so at some point, I decided to create a children’s book based on folk stories and discovered that they fool of intentional cruelty that all of us still grieving. My goal is to create adaptations of international folk which could start a new age of fairytales free of the necessity to kill people on purpose to survive.
