I was born in Moscow, Russia during the hight of Communism and "enjoyed" the life of an average Russian child until my family's immigration to the United States in 1982. We settled in Brooklyn, NY where I finished school and then graduated from Bernard M. Baruch College in New York City with a degree in International Business. Despite my business degree, history and travel have always been my passions and I have tried to incorporate my knowledge and experiences into my stories.

I currently live in New Jersey with my husband and two children.

A Rip in the Veil by Anna Belfrage

A very entertaining read for fans of the time-travel genre. The method of time travel is quite unique, as is the woman who created it. Anna Belfrage weaves an interesting tale that continues in Like Chaff in the Wind.

A beautifully written mystery with several intertwining plot lines. I enjoyed it even more than The Book of Killowen, which I read first.

“A few shy stars and a pale moon had already appeared in the sky, ready to take up reign from the sun that had abdicated for the night. ”
Irina Shapiro, Sins of Omission

“love was like an insatiable hunger.  You were never sated for long, always wanting more, needing more.  It made you feel alive and rejuvenated the colors brighter and the perceptions more acute – the lifeblood that kept you from becoming old and hard. ”
Irina Shapiro, Haunted Ground

“She gave him hope, and as long as there was hope, there was life.”
Irina Shapiro, Haunted Ground
