  • About Me

    Seraphima Bogomolova was born and raised in St Petersburg, Russia. She received a degree in English and American Literature in the private Institute of Foreign Languages. Her studies had a big influence on her literary preferences with her two favourite authors being Anton Chekhov, one of the greatest writers of short stories in history, and John Fowles, a master of mystification in post modern English literature.

    Seraphima’s love for travel and exploration brought her to many cities and countries including London, New York, Moscow, Dubai, and Geneva. In Moscow, she had an opportunity to run a cigar magazine, Hecho a Mano, the first glossy publication on tobacco in Russia.

    In 2006 her publishing experience led Seraphima to launch her own rich media publication, Avantoure. This innovative, ahead of time project had made a stir in the digital publishing world and was produced in its avant-garde format until late 2009.

    Her debut into literary world started in October 2010 in New York, where a certain sequence of events prompted her to begin writing her first novella 'A Tricky Game‘. The first draft of her book was finished in 2011. In 2012 a pilot version of it was released under the name of 'My Trickster'. Based on the feedback of readers the novella was reworked and the final improved version of it was published as an e-book in July 2013.

    Currently, Seraphima works on her second novella and helping her husband on the development and launch of an innovative online platform related to books.

    Why do you write?

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Even though I appreciate stories and books written by authors coming from different backgrounds I was greatly inspired and influenced by Russian and English classics. My favorite Russian author is Anton Chekhov, one of the greatest writers of short stories in history. He used to say: 'Brevity is the sister of talent.' And my favorite English author is John Fowles, a master of mystification in modern literature.

    It is difficult for me to name just one favorite book. This is because at different stages of my life I was drawn to and influenced by different books. For example, in my teens I was very much into romanticism of Russian classics such as Turgenev and Pushkin. Later, I was into J. D. Salinger, Somerset Moem, and John Updike. At some point in my life, I was crazy about Iris Murdoch and her mysterious, twisted novels. Recently, I have discovered such wonderful female writers as Erica Jong, Tove Jansson, Julia Cameron...
