Short bio­graphy: I stud­ied Eng­lish Lan­guage and Lit­er­at­ure at Sofia Uni­ver­sity. My first job after gradu­ation was with the Bul­gari­an Tele­graph Agency. After that I worked as an edit­or for a lit­er­ary magazine pub­lished by the Uni­on of Bul­gari­an Writers. Later I joined Petar Ber­on Pub­lish­ing House and since 2001 I have been work­ing for CIELA Pub­lish­ers.
