My journey started in Ukraine, where I was born and raised. My parents couldn’t make ends meet, no matter how hard they tried. Out of desperation they took an opportunity and went to work abroad for nearly four years. Unfortunately they were unable to take me with them, and I was moved to another town to live with my grandparents. A teenager at the time, I entered into some of my darkest years suffering from depression and frequent suicidal thoughts.
Due to my parents’ efforts, their financial situation significantly improved. My clothes were fancy, and I had many things that my classmates could only dream of. While my peers were showing admiration and high regard for material assets, I understood early on that human care and love were way more important that any tangible valuables. I was ready to give up all of that “stuff” for a chance to be with my parents.
Luckily, I didn’t kill myself, and after reuniting with my mom and dad and moving back to my home city, life went back to normal for a while. I grew up, graduated from a medical university, and about a year later moved to the United States. The country of opportunities presented new challenges. Building my life from scratch, learning the language, and adapting to the new culture was tough. My survival skills were seriously tested. There were moments when I had no money for food and starved for a day. The battle to become a citizen took thirteen years. I worked to utter exhaustion, studying at nights, and I endured another seven years of not seeing my parents.
Nonetheless, these challenges were blessings, because hitting financial rock bottom taught me that it wasn’t the end of the world, and I could survive almost anything. I learned humility and appreciation when I had to swallow my doctor’s ego and be glad for the opportunity to paint a fence for six dollars an hour. Under the most desperate circumstances I felt a sense of purpose. My mantras were “If there is a will, there is a way” and “Whatever happens is for the better.” Every time the next seemingly stalemate situation got resolved, I knew that I was not alone in this journey of life. The invisible force was guiding me. The wisdom and solutions were always available, if I had only listened.
What inspires you to write?
In my one-on-one work I mostly serve high-powered influential individuals. They come to me during traumatic pain points in their lives feeling acute emotional sorrow, frustration, and anxiety.
These symptoms are not exclusive to rich and famous; most people experience the same challenges on daily basis. When I write, it allows me to extend my outreach to thousands of people and offer them invaluable information and assist in transitioning times.
Seeing the results and dramatic improvements in the lives of people who resonate with my work is profoundly gratifying and humbling. The transformations I witness continue to inspire me to share my gift with as many people as possible.
Tell us about your writing process.
These ideas come to and through me. I don’t write, I write down. I honed the ability to tap into the Universal Source of wisdom and it is my honor and privilege to share these insights.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
My publishing journey has been a miracle in and of itself. It has been unfolding swiftly and smoothly, which I’ve learned to interpret as the fact that I’m on the right track. Less than a year has passed from the instance when I got the idea that I should write a book to writing a book proposal and signing a contract with Morgan James Publishing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The entire industry is changing very rapidly – printing, marketing, distribution, sales – it will all look very different three years from now, and Morgan James is an example of the new publishing paradigm.
