About Svetlana Farwell
Svetlana Farwell was born and raised in the former Soviet Union, the part which is now the Russian Federation. She’s been on both sides of the Iron Curtain, and personally lived through the most significant events of world history. This makes her teenage kids come to the conclusion that she’s officially “a dinosaur.” All five of them were born and raised in Texas but have not [yet] acquired a single pair of cowboy boots or a bolo tie.
Svetlana has traveled to most states within the US, but still has a few spots in the world on her wish list to visit someday. She also fully intends to go on a cruise at least once in her lifetime. She has two step cats and two grand guinea pigs, which she enjoys spoiling every now and then, before handing them right back to their rightful owners. While her parents were avid gardeners (they had to be, to make a living), Svetlana is still in search of the right shade of green for either one of her thumbs.
Svetlana lives in Hurst, TX with her best friend and partner of eight years and works in the corporate world of the US, the largest third-party hotel management company with over fifteen hundred hotels, resorts, and conference centers throughout North America and Caribbean and ninety-three internationally. She enjoys a good game of sudoku, fresh cut flowers, dark chocolate, and a good laugh with, or at the expense of, her closest friends.
