Please share your thoughts about the future of literature. When you start writing? The future of literature is much like the future of the planet. Depends on the mercy of God. I started writing before I actually learned how to write 😉 I used to remember my verses by heart and there was always someone to write them down. People always made me make up verses.

The Good and the Bad. Who is winning in nowadays? The good always wins. Thinking in opposites is a human model, if we think more broadly, we would probably know that there is no evil. Universally everything is absolutely just.

How many books have you written And where can we find your books? I have five published books and I share the opinion that it’s not about counting the number of books, but the number of works. They are on sale on the Bulgarian market but not widely marketed.

The book. E book or Hardcover book What will be the future? The future lies in technology. Paper books will be in museums next to the parchment, papyrus, clay tiles… It’s a pity that paper is used for books for such a short time. We have exploited it too much for other things.

A phrase from your book. “He who has many friends is not to be envied, but he who has few.”
