I was born in St. Petersburg and am a third-generation Russian writer in exile, after my mother and grandmother. I am the first in my family to write in English. I am the author of two novels, The Miracle and Revenge in Sulamar. Both have been translated into Russian and published by Retro Publishing in St. Petersburg.
Tamar has a perfect life as a beautiful and wealthy aristocrat. She is abducted by a barbarian warrior during a raid who forces her to submit and makes her his slave concubine. She plots her escape though he gives her more pleasure than any man she has ever known. She learns that she is blamed for the raid and sentenced to death. And so there is only one thing left -- revenge at any price.
Marina has always dreamed of being a spy, but when she gets recruited by the Mossad in her junior year in college, she gets more than she bargained for. Her growing obsession with Ali Chalabi, a fellow student from Saudi Arabia, takes her from New York to Riyadh to the Arabian Desert and almost costs her life.
