Dear friend from "WRITERS.NET",
My name is Vladimir Kulichenko. I am a Russian children's writer. I was born in Minsk in 1960. In 1977, I entered the Library faculty of the University of Culture (St.-Petersburg) and finished it in 1982. After a service in the Soviet Army, I worked in the library and for the edition of the newspaper "The Book World" (Minsk). My first publications appeared in 1979 in humanitarian newspapers (Moscow, St.-Petersburg, Minsk). In 1985, my fairy tales for children were broadcast over the radio. In 1994, the publishing house "The Youth" published my fantasy story for young people under the title "Catamaran "Fugitive" (136 pg., 20000 copies, ISBN 5-7880-0565-5, hard cover).
In 1998, the publishing house "Modern Word" published my fantasy novel for junior schoolchildren titled "The Case of the Little Glass Men". This story is about a kind and funny soldier, strict militiaman, and little glass men from Africa (208 pg., 15000 copies, ISBN 985-443-021-9, hard cover, color illustrations). The three sample chapters were translated in English. Here is a synopsis:
One summer day, all of a sudden, the windows in the houses of small town begin to break. A militiaman, a photographer and a boy investigate the case. The photographer has got a tamed owl which can see little glass men who break the windows. The owl helps to track them, but it is very difficult to catch little men. At this time, a huge black man appears in the town. He is a magician from Africa. He sells ice-cream and looks for the little glass men who ran away from him. The photographer and the boy go to Africa by airmotorcar to find out mystery of the little glass men, which is hidden in the tomb of a priest somewhere in the jungle.
In December I hope to sign a contract with my Russian publisher for publication series (six books) of my new children's fairytale novels. I have good contact with literary agency "Corina" (Germany, www.corina.com).
If you have interest to my work, please let me know.
Very truly yours,
