An asocial young French-English aristocrat, Luke Edward Allen, virtually in love with a well-known journalist from London, Lina Brig, accidentally meets her in person while strolling on the beach in Nice (Cote D’Azure) where she has flown to for Christmas holidays. Unaware of her secret virtual admirer, Lina takes a snapshot of Luke, as she sees him playing by the sea with his dog, Domino.
Struck by the accidental encounter, Luke tails unsuspecting Lina to her hotel, finding out where she stays but not making his presence known to her. Soon, fate offers Luke another chance to meet Lina, spotted on the deck of a yacht anchored at the bay of St Tropez. Finding out that Lina is to attend a New Year Eve’s party on one of the yachts, Luke sets himself a goal of getting to the same party. Things, however, get complicated, for Luke harbours some secrets that hold him back from opening up to Lina.

Seraphima Nickolaevna Bogomolova was born in St Petersburg, Russia, into the family of scientist and intellectuals. Her mother is a Doctor of Philosophy with the focus on research of non-commercial use of lasers and her late father used to work on the development of fuel for spaceships. Thus, Seraphima was raised in a spirit of innovation, independent thinking and creative solution approach.
She holds a BSc degree in English and American Literature, received in a private Institute of Foreign Languages in St Petersburg, Russia. Her favourite author being a non-English though – Alexandre Pushkin – a poet, playwright, and novelist of the Romantic era and the founder of modern Russian literature.
As a kid Seraphima went to a French language school but it never grew on her. Instead, she studied English language, dreaming of becoming one day an international affairs reporter, travelling the world and sharing cultural and social news.
However, life turned out differently. Having graduating from the Institute of Foreign Languages, she became involved with mass media, promoting and marketing lifestyle publications.
Some years and many travels later, Seraphima’s talent in visual creative writing and artistic streak combined have lead her to the path of first producing story-based ballets to her own scripts and then to screenplay writing. Currently, her finished works include a ‘A Tricky Game' (2018) and 'Puzzled (2019) screenplays.
Her literary works include books – Puzzled (2014) in Russian and English, Unknowns (2014) in Russian, and Mystery of Orient Express (2015) in Russian.
I believe in writing that has a universal appeal, regardless where the audience is. Love, friendship, and dreaming have no borders.
