Experience Inventory, Born: Against All Odds, Kitchen & Baths

Are you living a happy life? If not, why not? Taking inventory of experiences and what matters most will bring you more joy. Find out how to make a list and check it twice to live a life of purpose for years of rich rewards.

Who said we can't choose our parents? Cynthia Brian interviews Russian-born, Hope Silver, about her novel, Born - Against All Odds. The book is a remarkable journey of a young soul who, upon finding his ideal mother, stops at nothing to make her his own. Yet things don't always go the way we planned, even for souls desperate to be born. Hope offers her views on Russia’s horrific war against Ukraine.

The kitchen is the gathering place of the home and the bath is our sanctuary. Do you know how to create a place where both activities work the way you intended? Cynthia Brian will give you tips and ideas that will offer more opportunities for enjoyment.

Bio: Hope Silver

Hope Silver was born in Siberia on December 24, when it was 42 degrees Celsius below zero outside. Her pen name is the translation of her real name, Nadezhda Serebrennikova.

Hope began her writing career as a journalist in St. Petersburg, before moving to the Czech Republic, where she completed Born - Against All Odds, her first novel.

After winning the green card lottery in 2013, she and her family emigrated to the United States. Born - Against All Odds is a winner of the US and international awards, including a special diploma for the 'Best Book of the Year' in Germany in 2015. Later Hope Silver's authored a collection of flash fiction Curious Thinkers which endows inanimate objects with human emotions. Hope now resides in Los Angeles, California, with her husband and kids. Her son is now her college classmate, even though she was his school teacher in Russia. Hope is sure that the most interesting thing in life is its unpredictability. In a good way. : Instagram: FB:
