About the Author
I was born in former Czechoslovakia, behind the Iron Curtain, and under the Communist regime. I grew up with stories from grandparents who survived both World Wars. I was surrounded by boys, naturally turning into a rebellious tomboy. That trade carried me through life and everyone close to me knows not to dare me.
I had been poor and I had been rich. I have lived in many countries; with every color and nationality imaginable. I was raised Christian, but I'm more spiritual than religious. I'm fascinated by the human body and the mind. Philosophy and psychology are my passions. Interestingly enough majority of my heroes are male. Somehow, tough, I keep writing about strong women.
The older I get, the less I know. It must be wisdom. Keep in mind, I'm still just work in progress. I'm an organized freak, a minimalist, a passionate reader and an expert gourmet. I love life, travel, my two amazing boys, my partner and people in my tribe with the same vibe. I'm truly blessed.
I live in paradise with amazing ocean views, mountains, and rainbows of Maui. Even after 20 years I don't take it for granted. I wake up every morning thanking God for another day. Like any survivor, when you know hunger and meet death... you don't sweat the small stuff. I believe laughter is the original Prozac and my drug of choice is coffee and wine.
Why do I write? I have three lifetimes worth of stories from different continents and a long list of amazing characters. Some of them finally made it onto the pages. This is my debut novel...
