I am not a professional writer. Instead, I've been writing technical reports and managing a group of professional engineers in a large and successful company that builds and maintains Australian Railway vehicles. I became PhD at the age of 26 and was teaching in the uni, and this period coincided with the collapse of the USSR and incredible events in my personal life.
Having migrated to Australia over 17 years ago, I faced the challenge of learning the new language and the new country, and a much bigger challenge - writing a book in English, sharing the experiences that I believe are vital for every person. I am inviting you to judge this story and benefit from it in many ways. I'm single, with no children, and because my book is now completed and published, I'm allowed to spend my free time playing sports and riding motorcycle :-)
