Boyana

January 3, 2022

There are several theories on the etymology of the name Boyana and all somehow refer to the elements of ‘strong’ and ‘noble’. I could not agree more, as having known Boyana Nikolova for over 10 years now, she has always surprised me with her strength, versatile skills and interests. And last but not least – her always smiling and sunny personality.

Once you start reading her debut novel “Survival’ (in Bulgarian “Oцеляване“) you cannot stop until you get to the end – words intricately intertwined, plot – engaging and making you analyze, think and re-think. Past, preset and future – all so engagingly blended. I wish her next books get published soon.
