Thus far I have finished writing one novel and published it: it’s called In Search of Kafka. I have nearly finished writing my second novel, which is called Not a Step. This section provides some information on my novels.

I Have No Friends

This is my third novel, although I haven’t yet finished the second one. It’s about a character who has no friends, but through the course of the novel comes to understand friendship better.

Одиночество Лины

This is a translation into Russian of my novel, I Have No Friends. It’s not yet finished—the translator, Elena Kartushina is up to chapter eight. She hopes to finish by the end of 2017.

Not a Step

Like Graham Greene, I seem to write two types of novels: my first is a thriller; my second involves frank and mature situations. The main character has long been dismayed by his inability to find happiness with a woman, something he treasures dearly.

In Search of Kafka

In my first novel, a thriller, the main character is relentlessly pursued by the federal agents for a crime which he is wrongly accused. He desperately tries to elude capture long enough to find the true criminal to hand to the authorities in his stead.
