Tamar Nikuradze was born on 1st June 1978 in Batumi Maternity House and grew up in Batumi, Ajara, Georgia. Her father, Mikheil, driver, spoke several languages, adored reading and wrote indecent, joyful poetry, which have never been published. Her mother, Nanuli Chitaishvili, a former accountant, is currently occupied with the upbringing of her grandchildren.

Childhood

In her childhood, Tamar was particularly sensitive. Being keen on detective genre, fear would wake her up early in the mornings. She loved painting and right for that reason appeared at Painting School, the final year of which was given up by her. She has never thought of becoming a writer. The only thing she dreamed of in her childhood was to be a queen. Once, being a third grade pupil, she announced to her father she wanted to be the Queen of Georgia. Father did not hesitate to respond with much seriousness to write an application for that. So Tamar considered the fact adequate.

Fun and sense of humor have been inseparable friends to Tamar. “I can’t live without them”, she told us with a naughty smile.

Despite her less active school years, the entire studentship was hyper active organizing different events and taking part in number of competitions.

As said above, she didn’t think of becoming a writer. However, “writing games” originate from her childhood diaries. Her and her friends’ everyday, funny and diverse life stories employed real and interesting characters.
