Darina BelayaAbout Me
This page will help you get acquainted with the biography of Darina Belaya, the author of the science fiction novel, “Fracture Zone,” as well as other works published in Russian.
I was born in 1988. My childhood was spent among the expanse of the Poltava region, in a cozy private house with a huge garden. There was no computer or mobile phone,
At the age of fourteen, I assured myself that I would write a book. The work started with great passion; hours, days and weeks of dedication, or rather devotion, and lasted for four years.
The result was a 21-page fiction novel, “Dawn,” with grammatical errors, incoherent proposals and good ideas that required revision so meticulous that it was better to rewrite everything. Whether or not it will ever get done is unknown, because it is always more interesting to implement new ideas. Five notebooks, 96 sheets, are some very fond memories that were the result of this first large-scale literary experience.
My printed publications started with poems & newspaper clippings, which are collected by my grandmother. A significant event for me was the inclusion of my works in the poetic anthology of the International Competition, “Golden stanza,” as well as the publication of the poem, “Roads to Dawn,” released under the auspices of the International Guild of Writers.
In 2010, I graduated from Kyiv National University of Trade and Economics, with a major in Finance. I remember the years at the university as some of the best, brightest, most colorful & carefree years of my life. It was during those mellow days, the idea of a science fiction novel, “Fracture Zone,” emerged in my mind, and now the novel is published in 2016.
