The author of a psychological thriller 'A Tricky Game' and the editor of Avantoure infotainment blog, Seraphima Bogomolova was born and raised in St Petersburg, Russia, Seraphima 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, and Dubai. 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 Seraphima met a person whose dream prompted her to write her first novel 'A Tricky Game' (www.atrickygame.com).

Influences

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.
