Shartz on writing

Cosmas Shartz

Cosmas Shartz is an Orthodox Christian monk living in the Autonomous Territorial Unit of Gagauzia, in the southern part of Moldova, in Eastern Europe, helping to translate church services and spiritual literature into the Gagauz language. He writes a lot of fiction which is read only by a handful of people, but perhaps his best-known work is a piece of non-fiction, A Little English-Gagauz Conversation Guide.
