Goodreads Author

Sofia, Bulgaria

Member Since
August 2015

I am a Bulgarian-Canadian author. My first novel is "The Devil's Gorge" - a tale of mystery, love and betrayal. I grew up in Sofia, Bulgaria and moved to Canada with my family when I was twenty-eight. Reading is what I love best. I often read several books at a time. My time is split between reading, writing, family and work. Travelling, watching crime shows and observing people are also things that I like. My second book, the short story collection "Faces", deals with the all too human problems city dwellers encounter on a daily basis. In August, 2016, I published my third book "The Master" which takes the reader on a roller-coaster journey in search of an artefact that could change the fate of the world.

Hallelujah! I finished my fourth book – White Clay –a historical/ conspiracy thriller set in Canada and Eastern Europe. I was considering self-publishing as I normally do. I even started setting it up on Kindle and then I had a change of heart. I decided to submit it to Kindle Scout - a publishing opportunity for new, never-published books where readers play an enormous part. I must admit that... Read more of this blog post »
