Apolonia Plum was born in Minsk, Belarus. She grew up surrounded by nature and animals. She believes animals to be great teachers. Her characters are drawn from some of her real life acquaintances, and their adventures are filled with fun, new experiences and life lessons. They are not very serious lessons, but important ones: about friendship, discovery, and life in general.
She now lives in New York City, where she raises two kids and architects software solutions for living.
