“Everyone would want to be like you”, said my Godmother thinking of my successful career as the bestselling author of popular psychology in Serbia, my bestselling novels, thousands of thankful people who used my knowledge and skills of a Life Coach, Reiki Master and Teacher of Meditation; this also refers to my health, physical appearance and glow in the eyes reflecting on my inner serenity and joy.

My books are often recommended by psychotherapists, psychiatrists and clinical psychologists.
Guidelines for emotional and spiritual maturation, inspiration and impulse for new insights, readers often get in my novels (“Lemur’s Love”, “Less Than Three”, “Amor Porteño” and “In The Name of Love”), where the identification with the main characters is spontaneous and easy, and a message strong and awakening...
