Olga Toprover

Biography

Olga Toprover was born in Russia, lived in Canada for a few years, but currently resides in Los Angeles. Olga holds Master Degree in Computer Science from Moscow State University. She is also a published media author.

Her scientific education and journalistic experience as well as living in different cities and countries formed her into the science fiction writer she is today. One of her favorite themes is robots and their role in our future. But never mind the technical aspect, Olga believes that true literature is about people instead of the advances of science and technology. Her stories, above all, are about us.

Besides creating fantastic new worlds, Olga loves swing dancing, swimming in the ocean and spending time with her children.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
In women’s fiction genre, I love a French novelist, Francoise Sagan. I love her mix of happiness and sadness, I love her open endings.
I like Agatha Chrisite’s almost mathematical logic. I read most of her writing, including her autobiography and her books under the penname of Mary Westmacott.
I also admire Ursula LeGuin and her endless fantasy. At the same time I love the classic hard science fiction by Isaac Asimov.
Talking of the literature which forces us to think and cry I would choose a French writer, Romain Gary.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
A though about having a cap of coffee may inspire me to get out of bed. Or may not. I am a night person!
