Read my book

My book "Vana's Adventure with Mother Earth" was inspired by children in my former neighbourhood in the Rheingau, Germany to whom I dedicated the book. I explain the whole story in my radio interview on "Books on Air".

The book was written for all readers with a curious mind - both children and adults seeking to reacquaint themselves with their inner child. This compelling story will take you on an unforgettable adventure that will help you see your world with reinvigorated eyes.

My next book "Erkläre mir das Leben bitte" - "Explain Life To Me Please"- a novel written in German (an English translation will follow shortly after its publication) consists of two stories: one surrounds Thomas, a Managing Director, who has to make some major decisions about his future that unavoidably involve choices that are diametrically opposed to how he was raised, has lived and had expected his life to unfold.

The second, parallel story is centered around a frog named Robby who also has a choice to make for he has the opportunity to actually become a human but he is not yet certain if this will be worthwhile. Before making his decision, Robby meets a man sitting by the river and in a tongue-in-cheek conversation bombards him with a myriad of questions and the answers disclose the absurdities of our human life. Does Robby ultimately choose to become a human?

In general, Mother Earth has always been at the centre of most of my artistic work as I consider Her the greatest inspiration ever for She delivers miracles every single day to us each and every one of us.

I firmly believe that a way to sustain our lives on this beautiful planet starts just under noses within the little miracles that happen directly in front of our eyes while we are too often preoccupied paying attention to the substance-free buzz around us.
