Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born and brought up in a small village in Chernobyl region, where there is nothing but endless forest and endless railway tracks. There is absolutely nothing to do - maybe that’s why I have always entertained myself by inventing crazy adventures in my head. Exaggeration, juxtaposition and unexpected plot twists always came naturally to me, even before I took any creative writing courses. This is also why it felt so obvious that I should write a novel as opposed to a memoir.
When did you first start writing?
Though already an eager storyteller, I only started writing after having read an extract from Fifty Shades of Grey. It made me quite furious that its female protagonist did not make a single choice for over a half of the book. She was just thrown into things, never making anything happen herself. Even interviewing Christian Grey in the opening scene was not her idea. I found the book so uninspiring and so demeaning to women, especially in our progressive era, with a ‘new day on the horizon’. I felt I could do a better job and portray a truer image of a modern woman. My protagonist has the courage and nerve to stand in the way of powerful men’s business interests, because she does not believe what they do is right.
