Aleynikova is a Russian-born writer living in Vancouver. She writes poetry and prose that often move one to question the essence of life and individuality. Her mind never shuts up, so writing is a good way of dealing with it. Not always though. She discovered that unless she is writing her mind is a torture chamber. She gets inspired by intricacies and ironies of human nature and wonders how life can get so ironic at times. Maybe that is why her fiction and prose may leave one with questions that might end up being answered in one mind at a time. Or not.
