Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love going on long walks with the dog and the cat (yes, the cat comes with us). When it rains, and in Cornwall it rains every day, I like to curl up in my favourite armchair with a good book and a cup of tea.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I started reading when I was three. My mom told me I started talking really early and at 9 months I was reciting poems for children in Russian by Korney Chukovsky. The first story I read was a Russian folk tale, I remember having a big book filled with magical tales about Baba Yaga, Ivanushka the Fool and all kinds of magical creatures. But the first book that had a real impact on me and made me fall in love with Victorian England was Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. My father had the complete Sherlock Holmes collection and I read each book (the whole series was divided into​ three tomes) multiple times.

And Silent Were The Stars
After receiving a distress signal from the mining colony on AF-235-B, a rogue planet also known as Nyx, a sole survivor is brought back to the ship. While the second rescue party is dispatched on the search for the hundred and fifty-seven colonists, which seem to have vanished into nowhere, the atmosphere aboard Syracusae gets more tense with every passing moment as crew members start to go missing. Rebecca Porter, a medical officer, tries to solve the mysterious disappearances and is forced to face the horrors that are now lurking aboard the spaceship.
