About Anita Kovacevic
Anita Kovacevic is a multigenre author of both children's and adult fiction. Her belief in the power of storytelling has been strengthened through her years of teaching and teacher training. As a member of an international teaching community, she has also participated in a worldwide charity anti-bullying e-book Inner Giant, which, among others, features some of her first short stories, essays, illustrations and poems. Since then, she has been invited to participate in several anthologies, alongside a number of renowned international authors.
You can read her reviews, book news and author interviews on her Wordpress blog Anita's Haven. A recent nickname, 'The Invisible Cheerleader', refers to her support for independent authors and promoting books and reading in general, not so much her athletic abilities.
Anita enjoys writing stories which come to her on her 'dreamstep', blending reality and magic, and has a quirky fondness for writing limerick stories. She lives with her husband and children in Croatia, where she graduated from university with a degree in English and Spanish Literature.
Free time? - Non-existent.
Current work-in-progress? - Yes, there is always one. OK, two. Well, several.

To retain a distinctive international flavor (or ‘flavour’) each story is in the English style of its author, so some stories are in British English, some in American, and some reflect the jargon of a region.
P.S. 'Twisted Tales' is mixed-fruit jam for the soul. Laugh, cry, dwell deep and sigh. Enjoy!
This booklet is my simple method of approaching teaching, learning, planning and assessing. This is the method which made my most complicated tasks doable, helped my quietest learners talk, my non-writing learners write, and my overwhelmed teacher trainees focus and grow.
The method is applicable to any area of education, and examples are provided from my work experience. There are planning examples, as well as learning games.
a world quite close to the real one,
and yet in another dimension.
There are no rules, no restrictions,
no rights or wrongs about poetry.

This is the third volume in my poetry collection.
It is called Imagine, and it will show you
fantasy and nature details, both the light and the dark ones,
which inspire me, frighten me and represent
worlds entirely their own.
Gradually, Jeremy and Dot make some new and unusual friends, whereas Emma and David start working again, and things seem to be going for the better. But evil never rests. The Jacksons, a bigoted and brutal family of pig farmers, however scary, are not the only ones leaning towards malice. The more new friendships grow, the more villains will struggle to retain power. Will the arrival of the newcomers tip the scales in favour of the good or the evil? And how can The Forest of Trees play its part in the solution?
The life between the legendary Forest of Trees and the small town of Tillsworth is separated only by a road. All it takes to reconnect is to take that path.
Hank Hedgehog lives in a beautiful forest surrounded with all sorts of animals, both dangerous and friendly. His parents love him so much that they try, perhaps a little too much, to protect him from harm. Eventually, Hank starts hating his spikes and becomes very lonely. However, all good families have problems – once they talk them out, and with a little bit of help from their friends, the world can be a wonderful, fun and exciting place again!
