ALL ABO UT ME
I was born in the former Soviet Union. My parents always encouraged my passion for reading. We didn't have a lot of money, but our house was always filled with books.
I have been making up stories and writing poems as long as I can remember . My first literary works were poems published in newspapers. At sixteen I appeared on radio and TV to present my poetry and received fan mail every day.
Later I fell in love with mathematics and got
a Master of Science degree in Math. I came to the United States as a
political refugee with my husband,
Boris Mordukhovich, and two
daughters, Lena and Irina. When
we left the Soviet Union, the only thing we could bring with us was our
education. It was a very difficult time, but one I am proud to have experienced.
This country became our home. Today I live in Ann Arbor with my family and work for the
University of Michigan. I
enjoy traveling, and have visited more than 50 countries.
I am bilingual and influenced by two great cultures -- American and Russian. “Wuffy the Wonder Dog” is my first children’s book written in English. My goal was to write a story that is entertaining for both children and their parents. I enjoyed writing it, and Wuffy has become a very important part of my life. I expect he will have many new adventures in the future.
