Convergence: Two Women Cross the Planet in a Fight for Their Love and Freedom

Convergence, Meg Stone, cover

In 2005 I met a Russian architect online. Little did I know, she was literally fighting for her life. Our meeting a year later, in Kiev, Ukraine, unleashed a convergence of events that had us running for our lives and our love -- across the entire planet.

I set out to save the life of this extraordinary woman, but in the end, I also saved my own.

Convergence is my account of our year-long struggle for freedom and love.


Говорящая с луной

Говорящая с луной, Елена Иванова, Елена и Мег

TALKING TO THE MOON tells the story of my escape from Russia and is currently available only in Russian. Description in English. Email me if you would like to read this book.

Я – Елена, россиянка из Иваново. В 2006 году я бежала из своего дома и страны и пересекла полмира на парусной яхте, чтобы быть собой и быть с любимой женщиной.

Моё знакомство с Мег и странствие с ней через полпланеты перевернули мою жизнь, моё видение мира и самой себя в нём. Всё самое для меня важное, что я тогда пережила, я записала в книгу “ГОВОРЯЩАЯ С ЛУНОЙ”, где я рассказываю о встрече с Мег, о моём побеге к ней в Киев и нашем странствии в Канаду на парусной яхте.

Параллель, Елена Иванова, Елена и Мег

The story continues in my second book, PARALLEL. Description, in English, and translated chapters. Email me if you would like to read this book.

Наша с Мег борьба за собственное освобождение, за собственный путь в жизни так никогда и не подошла к концу. Прибытие в Канаду не было окончанием нашего пути, а было лишь остановкой. Мы с Мег продолжаем путешествовать по свету, живём нашу жизнь так, как хотим сами, и остаёмся верными себе и своему сердцу.

Моя вторая книга "ПАРАЛЛЕЛЬ" основана на событиях моей жизни в России до встречи с Мег и событиях двенадцати лет нашей с Мег борьбы за нашу свободу и любовь.

Meg’s Comments on Our Escape

Megs comments on our escape book, Elena and Meg, cover

Elena: Out there -- in Kiev, in Turkey and in the ocean -- it was the two of us. Everything that stood in my way, stood also in Meg’s way. Only it always seemed to me that while all I had to do was to follow Meg’s footsteps, she had it way harder. She came up with, planned and realized an endeavor that laid squarely on her shoulders and which, because of it’s complexity and enormousness, seemed unachievable.

It is an understatement to say that Meg astonished me and continues to do so. She may have shared years of her life with me, but until this day I try to figure her out, find the source of her courage, energy, the ability to squeeze, drill a way through virtually any obstacle standing in her way. This interview with Meg was intended to do just that.

A Dangerously Unconventional View of Canada

Dangerously Unconventional View of Canada, Elena and Meg, cover

"Oh Canada!" From these loaded words and exultant headlines, one assumes this North American pseudo-country is a veritable utopia. But what do we really know about Canada? What is life like there? What are the people like in Canada? Join me for a hilarious, no holds barred, irreverent, interview with Meg, a Canadian, familiar with a class system that officially doesn't exist; two worlds, two very different realities: obscene wealth, ignorance, safety, and contempt; yet, just across the tracks, it’s a world of servitude, poverty, social programming, fear and despair.

Consider this fair warning: you might just puncture a lung, laughing yourself to hysterics with Meg’s megadose of whoop ass reality. Be careful, it bites!
