A middle-aged translator and agent seeking young writer. Author of my own photies. My given name has several derivatives and diminutives that I happened to use as a part of my pen-names. A big fan of history and English language and linguistic in general, always in online search, placing reliance on Facebook, the busy place like no other. “I believe in yesterday, for really, history and the past of humankind may be a fascinating subject for a chat; history is my hobby, twists and turns & junctions of time; besides, your own past is the only thing that nobody can take away.”
“Vaulting my novelese,
abetting my hero’s sins,
sponging on marble idols,
I create reality, fluffy as catkin.”

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”
Ayn Rand

“The first snow is like the first love. Do you remember your first snow?”
Lara Biyuts

“Mirrors don’t lie. They only show a part of truth. A broken mirror can enlarge a face up to a dimension of a small planet. A problem of reflection? A point of view.”
Lara Biuts, La Lune Blanche. Part Three

“Some believe that every library looks like a splendid cemetery of human thoughts and ideas. Could librarians be called grave-diggers? However that may be, like a cemetery, a library will never stop being of use.”

“Mirrors don’t lie. They only show a part of truth. A broken mirror can enlarge a face up to a dimension of a small planet. A problem of reflection? A point of view.”
Lara Biuts, La Lune Blanche. Part Three

“Sober Minds give the world a chance. True Love brings you Hope. Blind Faith moves mountains. And the main savior from despair is Laughter.”
Lara Biuts

“Literary style is like crystal-ware: the cleaner the wineglass, the brighter the brilliance. As a reader, I agree with those who believe that a colour of the dress, which a character has on, as well as any enumeration and description of dishes at dinner or in the kitchen should be mentioned only in case if all this has a strong consequent relation to the plot, but as an author, I can’t help mentioning all this, with no particular reason, just for love for my characters, desiring to give them something nice and pleasant. Melancholy grows a platinum rose. Affection grows a double rose.”
Lara Biyuts

“There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book.
Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
