A little girl has an unusual liking for ghosts, boogeymen and scary tales. As a matter of fact, she is escaping to her own world from a real horror. The word 'monster' now gets a totally different meaning, as the real monsters sometimes look like normal people.

Writer Biography - Alena Cadova

Alena wrote her first short story at the age of seven. Since her childhood, she showed her desire of being creative. She dreamt of becoming a writer, artist or a composer.
During the last two years, Alena participated in film or script festivals in which she succeeded many times. In 2016, she won the award for Best 3- minute Screenplay in New Rennaisance London Film Festival. In 2017, she won the golden award for The Best Short Screenplay in New York Screenplay Contest.
Alena calls herself a civil and an artist in one body; both a pragmatist and an escapist. She considers the creative process to be a basic aspect of her being which gives meaning to her life.
