Here are some words from the Author’s note of her first novel “Sherwood Untold: The Journey”.
“Having by nature, since my early years, a very vivid and creative imagination, I’ve been interested in all possible forms of art. Since the age of six (this is where, more or less, my childhood memories begin), I have tried to entertain members of the family, relatives and their friends with various concerts, dancing and singing and always took part in any possible production during kindergarten. As I was growing up, I became an avid reader. My head was always full of fantasies, stories and ideas. I remember trying to write my first book when I was about nine or ten years old. It was a sort of graphic novel about a little boy and his adventures in a land of fairies. Unfortunately, I never really paid much attention to these ideas and as the time passed by, these stories have been forgotten. In my late teens, I was still looking for a way to express my creative nature through drawing, acting, dancing, singing, etc., but always wanted to do more, something bigger!”
Ekaterina is currently working on the second instalment of the trilogy “Sherwood Untold”.
