Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a big good family where everyone listened to seniors and loved children. Senior - this is my grandmother and grandfather, who actually replaced my parents and I lived all my childhood and youth. There I learned to read for four years and since then I love this occupation, which always encouraged me to writing creativity. But life has left a sad mark and brought about changes in my work and I have very little writing, and reading books became secondary in my life, occupied more fit occupation, although the thrust to the letter I had not disappeared.

I do not remember exactly, but I went to school at age 6, and already knew to write letters and words.
