I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and moved to the United States at the age of seventeen. My third book of fiction in Russian was published in Moscow-based Vremya Press in 2016. Where Does the Sea Flow, a short film based on one of my stories, was a finalist in the Manhattan Short Film Festival. My English-language fiction is forthcoming from Alaska Quarterly Review, World Literature Today, Feminist Studies, and California Prose Directory; stories have appeared in Narrative Magazine, the Chicago Tribune’s Printers Row, Santa Monica Review, Epiphany, Hobart, B O D Y, J Journal, Mad Hatters’ Review, Prick of the Spindle, and other print and online publications. I serve as a consulting editor at Narrative Magazine and as a co-moderator of the San Francisco Writers Workshop.
