ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born on the shore of the Japanese Sea in Vladivostok, Russia, Anna currently finds herself writing from the island of Manhattan. Her dispatches varied in form and substance over time; after years of academic work and legal practice, she finally finds herself writing pieces she truly enjoys. She is currently working on her first novel while completing her MFA in Creative Writing at the City College of New York. Her short fiction can be found in Visitant Lit, The Writing Disorder (forthcoming March 2019), and The Airgonaut (forthcoming May 2019). Although Anna loves (and writes exclusively in) English, Russian will forever remain her mother tongue.
"Your little will can't do anything. It takes Great Determination.
Great Determination doesn't mean just you making an effort.
It means the whole universe is behind you and with you:
the birds, trees, sky, moon, and ten directions."
