Karina Sema was born and raised in Ukraine. Always being a big dreamer, she loved cre- ating her own worlds and imagining herself living in them. Despite a dream of becoming a musician, she chose a path of telling stories to people who love visiting other worlds as well. The magic of fantasy always fascinated her, thus she finally decided to share her world with others. The book Lord of the Rings gave her hope and inspired her to make the first step of writing. When she’s not writing, she can be found somewhere wondering in nature or with a book in her hands, living through another life. She is also a big activist and is always fighting for her beliefs, no matter what. Currently Karina’s studying in Vienna to become a journalist.
