my biography


Meet Me

I’m an urban dweller who’s searching for inspiration, love and truth every day. I know places where time froze and where miracles happen… In my books I tell about my world invisible for common people. If you want to see it, you need to close your eyes and listen to the city, hear its voice and character. You will feel time has slowed down…

If you want to know me better just read my books and try to feel them. There is a little of me in every character . I can’t imagine my life without literature and New York! I enjoy travelling, and I visited many countries, but still my heart belongs to this wonderful city, where I can stay myself and give you my books!

I look out the window and I see the lights and the skyline and the people on the street rushing around looking for action, love, and the world’s greatest chocolate chip cookie, and my heart does a little dance.
