I was born second and the oldest girl into a family of 7 children back in 1950. My father was a bit of a gypsy so we moved a lot as I was growing up. That never actually stopped for me. I have worked at many different jobs, always making it my goal to do the best I could for the people I was working with. I married at 25, divorced at 32, and lived alone for a lot of years. Was I lonely? Sometimes. But all-in-all, I enjoyed those years. Then in 2010 I met a lovely man who is my soul mate. We moved in together in 2011 and now live in a motorhome, traveling where the road takes us. We enjoy panning for gold, taking photos, and being together. We have two dogs, Niki (a Border Collie-Belgian Malinois cross) and Swif ... read more

Alexander Ivlev was born in Russia in 1962. He started writing when he was 10 years of age. He created his own character named Nos and wrote a lot of funny stories about him, drawing the illustrations for his mini books as well.
In 1975 somebody gave to Alex a book called "Gymnastics for a brain". Alexander learned a lot about an autogenic system for self-relaxation from that book. That's how he became fascinated by hypnosis as a shortcut to achieving goals.
When Alex was 15, he founded his first rock band. Learning electric guitar was easy for him. 35 years later Alexander Ivlev is a hypnotic healing music composer and a guitar player.

The fact that you are reading this means I have a chance of getting noticed among the hundreds of thousands of writers on the book market. I don't know what I love more between football and writing. I guess I have to like writing more because there is no chance for me to earn money in football, except as a team mascot (assuming team mascots get paid) I don't restrict myself to one genre. If I have a good idea for a book, I will go for it, whatever the genre. Thank God, I never got a good idea for an erotica. My mother would kill me if I write one of those. No, she won't kill me because I will publish it under a pen name.
