reading fantasy books

A little bit about me...

I was born in Odesa, Ukraine, and immigrated to the States as a teenager. My mother was an editor and my grandmother a teacher. From an early age, they planted in my heart the love for reading and writing stories. This web site is about my personal journey to identity, purpose, and life balance as well as tips on writing and self-publishing. I will be posting helpful resources, inviting guest bloggers, and sharing new books.

I hope you join me on this

journey to self-discovery. 


Thank you for visiting,

                     begins with a single step."
