Love Is Never Past Tense

Love Is Never Past Tense, #1

*An Epic Russian Romance Saga Based on a True Story*

A whirlwind romance on a romantic Black Sea beach turns into a quick marriage for Serge and Janna, only to have family, fate and foolishness tear them apart. As the cold war grinds to a halt, the politics of late Soviet Russia separates the lovers on different continents. Never quite coming together, never quite letting go, their lives overlap and entwine over the years…

Beneath the adventure and romance is a deeper story of achieving dreams regardless of obstacles. Janna Yeshanova brings forth her personal account of courage in the face of impossible odds, her indomitable spirit, and a heart of gold that held onto a lost love for decades.

Anyone who’s ever pondered the eternal question, “What makes life worth living?” can find the answer within the international romantic saga of LOVE IS NEVER PAST TENSE

Can the power of love stand up to time, politics and distance? Two young lovers face turmoil, separation and the fall of their homeland. This intriguing and often painful love story spans for decades of life-altering years, life-altering events, but proves that true love will endure as long as the human heart beats.” - Amazon top 1000 reviewer

The portrayal of Communist and post-1991 Russia is brilliantly done and made the story so much more than 'just' a romance.” - Amazon top 500 reviewer, Christoph Fischer

“This very modern love story, lets you feel the sorrow, fear and joy of a couple coping with events that reshaped the world. A great, dramatic romance in classic Russian style.” - Amazon reviewer

Welcome to Darkest Cravings, tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am a life coach and a leadership trainer by profession, a writer by accident. I grew up in the Soviet Union, where I had a Master’s in Russian Language and Literature. Also, I worked as an editor of Scientific and Technical Information journal and later was teaching Russian language and Literature. When the collapse of the country became apparent, my family and I immigrated to the United States. That sounds simple, but it took months of nearly impossible effort. In The US I received my second Master’s. This one is in Applied Behavioral Science. For a long while I taught Conflict Resolution at Antioch University in Yellow Springs in Ohio.

When did you first consider yourself a “writer”?

I’m still consideringJ. My first book, Love Never Past Tense, was written in Russian during a visit to Crimea in 2009. I translated it to English when I returned back to the US. I have two sequels. Book Two, In The Land Of Scarabs, was just released. Book Three, Zebra Fish, is coming June 23.

Writing adult fiction isn’t for everyone, how did you end up writing for the toughest audience?

With great pleasure.

Most of the intimidating parts of being an adult fiction writer is the steamy scenes, how did you overcome the “stage fright”?

I still haven’t.

Which fictional character would you like to go on a date with? Why?

Doctor Zhivago, to say I admire his generous heart and to hear the story behind the story.

What was the first adult fiction novel that you read? What was your reaction?

Giovanni Boccaccio's "The Decameron" , a collection of novels. My reaction: Really?

Your favorite adult fiction book is?

The list is always changes. Right now, 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and his other novel Love In The Time Of Cholera.

Your favorite Author is-?

This list is also changes. Every time when I flip the last page of a new book, I think: Wow! This is the one! I’m love Russian classics: Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, and Pushkin. American, Arthur Hailey, Salinger, Scott Fitzgerald; Japanese: Haruki Murakami , French – Somerset Moem, Fransuaza Sagan, Antoine De Saint Exupeery + more

We all have a treasured possession, what is yours?

Life.

Are your characters based on real people or did you create them from scratch?

Real people. Love Is Never Past Tense is based on a true story. In The Land Of Scarabs and Zebra Fish are fictional sequels based on those same real characters.

Do you think adult fiction have reached its full potential yet, or are we still in for a huge surprise?

There’s an old Russian proverb: Nobody can predict the ways of God.

Do you think adult fiction helps improves relationships?

Yes, if taken properly and you can apply it to yourself. The reader must be able to relate to the characters.

If you have to pitch adult fiction to someone that’s too shy to read it, what would you pitch?

I won’t.

What is your motto?

The one my Mom instilled in me: “The dearest possession in life is life.”
