Biography:
Svetlana Chmakova was born and raised in Russia and moved to Canada with her family when she was 16 years old. She studied Classical Animation at Sheridan College, after which she spent a few years as a freelance illustrator/animator, doing toy designs, book cover and interior illustrations, as well as random freelance animation projects. Svetlana's comics career suddenly took off with her first full-length manga series "Dramacon", published by TOKYOPOP/Harper Collins and running 3 volumes, which became a fan favorite as well as critically acclaimed. This came as a big surprise to many, including the author. Svetlana then moved and camped out at Yen Press where she created a 4-volume supernatural series called "Nightschool" (winner of the Joe Shuster award and appearing on the NYT manga bestseller lists), followed by a 3-volume manga adaptation of "Witch and Wizard" written by James Patterson. Svetlana's various works have been published in over 13 languages, including her native language (Russian) and the language of works that influenced her so much, Japanese.
