Lina Zeldovich wrote in Russian the first half of her life and in English thereafter. She has published many short stories, travel articles, theater reviews, and a poetry book, Little Harlot. Lina won three Writer’s Digest awards, the latest one for a memoir story, First They Broke My Back, which will appear in the Writer’s Digest 2010 Collection. She is looking for a home for her four novels that she hopes will make a bestselling list – preferably The New York Times! Her new novel, Death by Scheherazade’s Veil, is a belly dancing murder mystery.
When Lina is not plotting yet another crime, she writes plays, produces indie films, and reads her works at the NYC open mikes. Her other passions are traveling off the beaten path, all things poisonous and, of course, belly dancing!
