Emiliya Ahmadova was born in the city of Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. When she was just nine years old, she developed a passion for reading, literature, poetry, and foreign languages. In high school, she participated in and won many poetry competitions. Starting at the age of ten, she began writing poems and short stories in Russian. Emiliya has diplomas in business management as well as a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in human resources management. She also has international diplomas in the advanced study of the theory and practice of management, administration, business management, communication, hotel operations management, office management and administration, and professional English from the Cambridge International College, in addition to a certificate in novel writing. Emiliya speaks four languages (Azeri, Russian, English, and some Turkish), but her native language is Azeri. Because of her love for humanity and children, she has started volunteering in a local school and in 2011 became a Cub Scout leader and won a trophy as the first female parent leader. Emiliya likes being around people, adores travel, enjoys playing soccer, and relishes in helping other people.
During her lifetime, she has encountered a variety of female friends who have been physically and verbally abused as children or adults. Some of them have subsequently been neglected, had childhood traumas, or ended up in relationships with abusive, controlling men. Knowing that these people were unconsciously crying for help but no one was there to help them or hear their voices, she felt and understood their pain and witnessed their hopelessness, frustration, fears, disappointment, and isolation. In writing Broken Chains, Emiliya seeks not only to depict other people's struggles and dilemmas, but also to give a voice to those who are in the same situation. She also wants to show that there is always hope and light even in the loneliness of darkness. Emiliya sincerely hopes that this novel will assist other people to get their lives on a positive track as her protagonist Silvana does. As a sophisticated prose writer and masterful storyteller, Emiliya has an innate sense of style and narrative, betraying a marvellous talent for weaving an intricate story of victory over domestic violence in all its pedigrees. Thus, beyond the fictional world, she emerges as a global voice and motivational speaker for combating abuse in all its carnations (sexual, parental, familial, spousal, partner, and child)
