Born in St Petersburg, Russia, Seraphima Bogomolova holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and English and American Literature, received in a private Institute of Foreign Languages in St Petersburg.
In addition to the degree in linguistics, Seraphima has studied as separate short courses screenwriting with Aaron Sorkin at the MasterClass, 'Introduction into Classical Music’ at Yale University, 'Psychology of Self-actualisation and Creative Identification' at Tomsk University, and 'Literary Wardrobe' - symbolism of clothes and fashion items in literature, at Moscow State University.
As a kid Seraphima went to a French language school but it never grew on her. On her own initiative she studied English language, dreaming of becoming one day an international affairs reporter, travelling the world and sharing cultural and social news.
Having graduated from the IFL, she, however, had set for a different kind of adventure, becoming involved with print media, promoting and marketing lifestyle publications. In 2006, her spirit of innovation, independent thinking and creative solution approach led her to launch her own publication - Avantoure, one of the first digital only magazines, utilizing the latest developments in digital publishing, such as inclusion of rich media into the layout of the publication, and selling digital subscriptions.
In 2013, Seraphima’s talent in visual creative writing and artistic streak combined brought her to the path of, first, staging story-based ballets to her own librettos, and, later, to screenwriting, with her current finished works being ‘A Tricky Game', 'Puzzled, and 'Головоломка' (in Russian).
Her other literary works include books – Головоломка (in Russian) and Puzzled (in English), Задача с неизвестными (in Russian), and Загадка Восточного Экспресса (in Russian).
Currently, Seraphima is working on her non-fiction book 'Menabilly, My Love...' - a literary detective research focused on uncovering mysteries and solving plentiful riddles of the phycological thriller 'Rebecca' by Daphne du Maurier.
Seraphima's life circumstances have allowed her to visit and live in many cities and countries of the world, including London, New York, Moscow, Dubai, Geneva, Berlin. But her all-time favourite remains London – a melting pot of creativity, individualism and quirky ideas.
