Tell your readers a little about yourself, where you grew up, where you live now, where you went to school etc. Let them get to know the person you.
My roots lie in Bulgaria, but from six years of age, I am living in France. I have always been a book enthusiast. Aside from my love for literature, my career has brought me to become a teacher. I enjoy educating eager young individuals and adults wanting to learn. My unvanquished love for the arts, including theater and music, brings me great joy.
What inspired you to author this book?
I believe that prosperity and happiness are present in every individual’s life, and hope that my books will guide readers towards it.
Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?
It was born in my dreams. I woke up one night and I knew that this is the excellent cover for my book.
Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?
There are many but if I have to be more precise I have dreamt to be like Louise Hey.
What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?
I started to write this book 3 years ago. I passed some difficult periods in my life and I realized that I have something to finish and without it, I can’t continue my life. One of the stories is about a person who was very special to me and I have lost him last year because of Coronavirus. I think that was my turning point to finish and publish this book.
Tell your readers about your book.
This is my second book for freedom, love, and revitalized decisions that can change one’s life forever.
There are four stories and one play, the first play I have written.
A Life was taken from me…
A true love story of two people with two very different cultures, beliefs, backgrounds, ethnicities and traditions coming together as one. While their differences are worlds away, these two create one world together.
Luxuries are not equivalent to love. The tangible materials given to us only temporarily satisfy one’s needs, while love remains eternal. One woman learns this alongside her husband, who has given her all but the love she desperately craves.
I have a Star in my Hand…
Being chosen by God is a blessing, especially when you’re living for the truth. A young girl joins a fisherman, and she realizes her miraculous powers from the divine. The key to this? A star.
What is eternal love, and how long does it last? This is the recurring question asked throughout this story. Will love to conquer all barriers, through the thick and thin that life brings us?
Love is Magic, but also freedom!
These four tales become intertwined into a beautiful play about a Bulgarian woman, unhappily married to an English nobleman. She feels truly passionate about Valentin, an unmarried man who he and the rest of his society frown upon adultery. Will Emilia find true love with Valentine, and escape the cage holding her back from being free?
Who is your target audience, and why?
My audience is people who like freedom, love truly and unconditionally, and want to change their lives forever!
What do you consider your greatest success in life?
For me is very important to feel free and aware. I know who I am, which is my mission here on this Planet. I try to understand other people every day. Furthermore, I believe that freedom of soul and emotions is the greatest success in life!
What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?
I believe that every writer is unique because he/she gives the readers a part of your heart!
This is what I do and will do in the future!
