I’m an author, blogger and speaker based in New York, USA although I also lived in Silistra and Varna, Bulgaria for 23 years.
I love reading and always dreamed of writing my own books, but I spent many years thinking about it before I actually took the plunge. However, I did write a lot of short stories and essays during my school years!
I have a Bachelor degree in Information Technology from the University of Economics -Varna, Bulgaria.
In August 2013, I published my first teen fiction novel ‘The Legend of The Moonstone’ available on Amazon and other online retailers. You can read all about my book on my Website - http://meglenaivanova.com/.
I love reading on my Nexus and I put my book reviews on Goodreads. You can connect with me here - https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/7216923.Meglena_Ivanova.
When did you first start writing?
As a child, I liked to read. I liked to live in books. I preferred fictional worlds to the real world. Books were my escape. Eventually, I learned to write. I wrote stories - about love, loss, friendship, addictions, ecology, nature and more. Writing is what I was always good at.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love being Writer because I love discovering new worlds and because I love finding out new things about people. Writing, for me, and I know for many of you, is an unparalleled experience. It’s in our blood, haunts our thoughts both waking and dreaming, is a soul-deep drive. And it should be – it is passion that both inspires our work and empowers it. Getting to sit back and have quality time with my subconscious manifestations brings the writing to life. Sure, the character doesn’t exist for real, but for writers they do and in deeper ways then the people we know in real life because characters can’t hide their truths from us if we take the time to seek them.
