Margarita Gokun Silver is a writer and an artist of Russian extraction now living in Madrid, Spain. In a not very original fashion Margarita picked up a pen (or, rather, a computer) when an important story knocked on her door and requested to be told. Since then Margarita realized that writing beats all of her previous endeavors in terms of being fulfilling and agonizing at the same time. Margarita’s work has been featured in Literary Brushtrokes, eFiction Magazines, Mash Stories and in the anthology Illuminations: Expressions of the Personal Spiritual Experience. When not writing, Margarita also paints and her paintings along with some of her writing can be seen on her blog.
