About me

Lucia Verona

 

I am a Romanian writer and you can find in my homepage some information about me, about my books and my plays. I write in Romanian, but a few of my works are translated into English and French.

I was born in Arad, a town in the West of Romania. After high school, I went to the Music Academy in Bucharest. At the time I wished to become an opera singer, but I soon realized that I would never be a second Callas, so after graduating in 1972 I moved on and started writing. My first story was published in a magazine in 1974.

In 1975 I married a writer, H.Salem. He was a prose-writer and wrote wonderful humorous stories and novels. And we jointly wrote some plays - comedies, of course - and many humorous works for the Radio and the TV. He unfortunately died in 1991.Lucia Verona

My first book in print was a translation from Hungarian, the novel "Eppur si muove" of the classic writer Jokai Mor. After my husband's death, I continued to write plays, but also prose - novels and short stories. I am a member of the Romanian Writers' Union and  president of the playwriting and theatrical criticism section of the Bucharest  Writers' Association (which is the Bucharest branch of the Writers' Union), also, from 2009, vice-president of the above-mentioned association. In 2008 I was elected President of the ICWP (International Centre for Women Playwrights), until 2009, then Vice-President in 2014-2015.

For a while I had a new hobby - the web design. I built quite a lot of websites for myself, for my friends, for my fellow-writers, also for the Bucharest Writers' Association and for the magazine "Drama". Cooking is another hobby of mine, but web design is less dangerous for my weight!

Nevertheless, things - and hobbies - change. In 2010 I started writing detective novels and stories, and in 2011 I began translating Shakespeare's plays. Now I alternate these, writing a crime novel between two translations.
