Where can I find your book?

My poetry book is available in bookstores worldwide and online on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Book depository, Lulu, Ingram network and so on.

Can I purchase a signed copy of your book?

Not at the moment.

Can I share your work?

I am more than glad when this happens, with given credit, of course. My poetry is protected under copyright law, so please ask for consent for commercial purpose.

How long did it take for you to write, edit and publish “The odyssey of my lost thoughts”?

I have always been writing few words on a piece of paper or on my iphone when I had strokes of inspiration.

In the summer of 2017, I compiled existing verses with new ones, inspired by the marvelous city of love and romance, Paris, of course.

Regarding editing and publishing, I used lulu.com platform for paperback version and for ebook format, Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing platform and the precious help of an IT genius Mihai Ionescu, which I thank him for it, from the bottom of my heart. I strongly recommend these two platforms for self-published works.

Is “The odyssey of my lost thoughts” appropriate for my child to read?

The odyssey explores four central themes of love, respectively hope, passion, pain and resilience. In some of the poems there might be some metaphors with a more erotic approach.

My target audience consists of young adults and adults, because of the nature of the poetry.

What inspires your writing?

Beauty expressed in every form of art.

I love to abandon myself completely in magic places such as: museums, palaces, theatre and opera halls and to absorb as much knowledge as I can and dream with my eyes wide open.

Besides metropolises that breathe history and are absolutely fascinating, during the summertime I love to sink my thoughts in the immensity of the sea.

Reading, writing and traveling are the true values of my heart.

When did you start writing?

I started to write in secondary school. I wrote poetry and short prose and I had participated to contests and corresponded with high school magazines. My mom was my number one fan and she always encouraged me to write more. She used to say that I was very talented and whenever I read to her, tears of joy and pride came to her eyes. Unfortunately she didn’t live enough time to see my poetry published, but I dedicated the collection to her memory.

Who are your favourite writers?

Oh, I have many. Only to mention a few, randomly: William Shakespeare, Virginia Woolf, Jane Austin, Emily Bronte, ​George Sand, Scott Fitzgerald, EE Cummings, Charles Baudelaire, Honore de Balzac, Marcel Proust, Gustave Flaubert, Guy de Maupassant, Emile Zola, Simone de Beauvoir, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Mircea Eliade, Mihai Eminescu.
