Bewildering Stories biography

In my previous incarnation I was a leopard. Most of my activities involved finding food and fighting for the right to mate. Yet I devoted some spare time to creative writing using my tail as a pen. I even became a member of the tail-club, quite prestigious among big cats.

Reborn in Moscow, I went to college, got a degree in engineering, got married, begot Daniel, published a few poetry collections and some translations from English and German to Russian. Recently I wrote a few short stories, and so I have dreams of being accepted to my old club as a storytailer.

Currently I live in Baltimore. Life is better here: more food, fewer fights. I have to confess though: sometimes I do feel nostalgic. And when I feel this way I go to the local zoo.
