A sci-fi author, a nomad, a dreamer and a reader on a quest.
After I realized that most of the science fiction I’ve read was written by men, I decided to discover as many female and non-binary sci-fi authors as possible. I’ve got a website (https://alinaleonova.net) where I review books by famous as well as indie and self-published writers, create lists, do interviews, etc.
Favorite authors: Lois McMaster Bujold, N.K. Jemisin, James S.A. Corey.
I love a good dystopian sci-fi thriller with a mix of cyberpunk and adventure that dives deeply into the characters’ psychology. Black Mirror is a great example of a show that explores grand ideas through a very personal lens, creating an emotional and real experience – a style I try to emulate in my writing.
