Orsayor : Who are your favorite authors and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
Natalya: My favorite authors are Omar Tyree and John Grisham, two male dominating writers in the genre of fiction. Omar Tyree captures the essence of urban life, correlating real life situations to his fictional characters, making it easy to identify. John Grisham's work captivates his readers with exciting and invigorating tales of drama.
Orsayor: Where is your favorite place to read?
Natalya: My favorite place to read is a coffee shop. Something about the smell of coffee, serene settings and quiet relaxation thatlures me into a deep read.
Orsayor: Most people say the book is better than the movie. Is this true for you?
Natalya: I've never been a fan of books gone to Hollywood, partly because I like to envision the story in my own way and seeing it on TV usually isn't the way I "picture" it. There have been quite a few that haven't been as bad and I try to give them all a chance.
Orsayor: What’s your favorite genre?
Natalya: I love a great fiction story; however, I'm partial to reading anything with a good story line. History is my favorite subject so I love reading things about the past and how it affects the way we are today. Reading is one of my favorite past-times. I have read more books than I can remember.
Orsayor: If you were writing a book about your life, what would the title be?
Natalya: If I were to write a book about myself, the title would be I'd Rather Be Me, encompassing my journey of fulfilling myself worth and appreciating the me God designed me to be.
