Margarita Kouznetsova, the mother of three, was born in 1974 in Siberia but grew up in an exclusive place called “Star City “where the astronauts lived and were trained. Everything about that place was magical; carefully defined lawns with fountains and colorful streetlights that casted off shapes of galaxies.

In 1998 she moved to the United States with her husband and son, and in September 2009 Margarita had a vivid idea of her book The Lost Twins of Zilonia.

She wrote the concept of it overnight, and it took her almost five years to complete the manuscript. During that time Margarita found out that she was expecting twin girls, which added a lot of new twists to the novel.
