Hi! My real name is Tsira Gelenava-Volobueva, and I am from Georgia, a country located right where the East meets the West. I completed five years at the Tbilisi State University with honors and became a Philologist. I taught language arts at the Technical University of Georgia for ten years and then worked at the Faculty of Russian History at the Tbilisi State University for a year. Later I found myself interested in the field of law and started my employment at a private Law firm. The next ten years of my life I spent in America, working in the field of design, though I had never forgotten my true passion for literature and history. "And God requireth that which is past" was thought out and mostly written during that period of time. In 2009 I returned to my motherland, and continue to live here to this day. During the last years, at different times, I have worked as a teacher at the Academy of World Languages, as an Ambassador’s personal referent and Head of the Chancellery at the Embassy of Turkmenistan in Georgia, and as a freelance tutor and translator for various organizations.Now, at this stage of my life, I think I'm finally ready to release my more than a decade-long literary work into the world for you, my dear reader. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
