Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
I was born and live in Riga, Latvia. I’m writing in English, which is my third language. I’m trilingual and speak three languages daily—Latvian, Russian, and English, so things can get messy sometimes with switching from one to another, though I’m fluent in all three, and Russian being my mother tongue.
I’m an engineer, married to a logistician. The third member of our tiny household is a cat who’s into spying.
What are your ambitions for your writing career?
I would say paying my bills with my writing would be a nice start. However, art for the sake of self expression is what always attracted me. So I’m usually torn between the brain and the guts, trying to please both.
FALAHA’S JOURNEY is a xenocentric, epic hard science fiction series, aimed at an adult audience. A vivid tale of alien species, races, and cultures, a family saga spanning multiple generations and extending across the universe, a tale of identity, exploration, and self-discovery amidst a devastating struggle for survival, and a love story that touches the stars. It consists of TWO VOLUMES ~ Vol 1: FALAHA'S JOURNEY: A Spacegirl's Account in Three Movements (Books 1-3) and Vol 2: FALAHA'S JOURNEY Into Pleasure (Book 3.5).
Falaha has grown and her transformation also encompasses a transition from a young girl into a young woman. This is an explicit, at times graphic, story of a young woman exploring the depths of pleasure, of mind, body and heart. But she isn’t going on that journey alone…
When a seemingly simple rescue mission turns into a nightmare, Falaha, an ambitious Danna Commander Trainee with a power she can't use properly yet, has her skills put to the ultimate test as her world begins to collapse, throwing her to the center of the conflict that might wipe out her entire race. Will the enemy kill Falaha and her crew before they can find a way to save their people?
