I’m a Russian author, born in Siberia. My pen name, Hope Silver, is a translation of my real, very long Russian name, Nadezhda Serebrennikova.

I’ve always loved writing. I worked as a journalist in a few newspapers in St. Petersburg and finished my first novel when we lived in the Czech Republic. When we moved to the US in 2013, I started writing a blog about my life in Berkeley, California, with my husband, son, daughter, and about our love for traveling and adventures.

“Why do you want to move to America?” they asked us during the interview in the US consulate in Moscow, after I won a green card lottery.

My 10-year-old son raised his hand and said, “We are travelers.”

I strongly believe that dreams come true if you want something badly enough. Many of my stories, short or long, for adults or for the kids, are about dreamers who don’t give up, like the main character of my novel, Born – Against All Odds – a child’s soul who stops at nothing on the way to his future mom.

In its Russian original, Born – Against All Odds was selected as ‘Best Book of the Year’ in the fantasy genre, at the International Russian Writers competition in Germany (2015). Its English translation by Krystyna Steiger (Canada) was awarded the second prize at the “Open Eurasia 5th International Writers Competition” in London in 2016. And the new edited version by Evolved Publishing won the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award in the US for Best Fantasy (Summer 2019).

In seventh grade, Mrs. Trader inspired me both as a writer and a teacher. In her class, I learned I loved to write and that my classmates liked to hear my stories. Her spirited students engaged in dramatic performances, hands-on projects, and lively discussions—nothing like the poor subdued souls across the hall, managed by the teacher with long green eyes. So Mrs. Trader was my model when I started a school and set aside my writing—that is, until it dawned on me that tribes of children have loved learning by listening to stories for thousands of years. So I wrote about a million words that speak to head and heart, which I am still reading to my child listeners. But now I’m writing stories, my second million words, to speak to the heads and hearts of adult readers and listeners, and hoping my classmates will like them.

J.P. Barnett

J.P. Barnett grew up in a tiny Texas town where the list of possible vocations failed to include published author. In second grade, he worked harder than any other student to deliver a story about a tiger cub who singlehandedly saved the U.S. Military, earning him a shiny gold star and a lifelong appreciation of telling a good story.

Fast forwarding through decades of schooling and a career as a software engineer, J.P. Barnett stepped away from it all to get back to his first real passion. Years of sitting at a keyboard gifted him with some benefit, though, including blazing fast typing hands and a full tank of creativity.

As a child, J.P. consumed any book he could get his hands on. The likes of Stephen King, Michael Crichton, and Dean Koontz paved the bookshelves of his childhood, providing a plethora of fantastical and terrifying tales that he read way too early in life. Though the effect these books had on his psyche could be called into question, these masters of storytelling managed to warp his mind in just the perfect way to spin a fun yarn or two.

J.P. currently resides in San Antonio with his wife and hellion of a cat, both of whom look at him dubiously with some frequency.
