She's a member of the Russian Writers Association, the PEN Center, and her plays have been translated into English, French, German, Serbian, Bulgarian, Czech, Finnish and Japanese. WLPG was fortunate that she found time for a short interview.
WLPG: Was there something in particular that motivated you to start writing for young audiences?
KSENIA: When my son was a little kid, we both relentlessly invented stories, dialogues, and characters. So one day, I collected some of these in a play and my career started. The first play i wrote was produced immediately in a few theaters and it's being produced still.
