L.B. O’Milla combines Russian folklore and American fantasy in her Adventures of Little Yaga and Her Friends.
O’Milla was born in Kiev, Ukraine. She was an avid reader since very young age. She began writing very early. Her first poem was crafted when she was only seven years old. O’Milla planned to major in creative writing and journalism in college. Plans changed when her family fled the country to escape religious persecution. O’Milla immigrated to America as a refugee but never lost her passion for writing.
Today L.B. O’Milla lives in Livingston, New Jersey. Her biggest supporters are her sister, Inna and her children, Olga and Eric.
