Anna Madorsky was born in Leningrad, Russia. Part of the wave of Soviet Jewish émigrés, her family left and settled in Houston, Texas. Her love of education has taken her through degrees in neuroscience, psychology, business, and paralegal studies. After years of storytelling through poetry and music (some of which has found its way into film and TV), the world of fiction writing opened as a full-fledged character suddenly stepped off the page. When she’s not writing, educating others, or making music, she enjoys time with loved ones, nature, and relaxing with a good show and a cup of tea. Gutted is her first novel.
