About the Author I, Lydia Skalozub, graduated from Technical University (in the Soviet Union it was called a Polytechnical Institute) and worked as an engineer for many years. In my more than half-century of life I have had to change occupations several times. Intricate and at times strange confluences of events, enhanced by curiosity, have led me to the USA. Besides my primary work, in different periods of life I have had various interests and hobbies with which I have occupied myself in my free time. My fascination with literature has entered a more serious phase—I’ve begun to write. And the culmination of this new interest is this book. In it I have included a theatrical play and a collection of my lyric poems.
