The author has made a successful career as a lawyer. However, over a period of time, he realized that this was not the only thing he could and wanted to do in life. After much soul-searching, he came to the conclusion that he needed a new mode of expression, one capable of adequately portraying his innermost thoughts, feelings and emotions, as well as his personal life experiences. Part of this search is reflected in his book. Spell on me is his first foray into the world of literary fiction. Like the character in the book, the author tries to be sincere and honest with the reader, but first of all with himself. Always, the overriding theme is a quest for what can be called the ultimate meaning or essence of life.
In his late thirties, the author lives in northern Europe, is married, and is the father to a small son. He counts among his interests reading classical philosophy, attending Aikido classes, studying Xi Gong and playing the piano.
Spell On Me
“Smith’s highly descriptive language … manages to convey … emotional states with equal alacrity and weight. A slim novel packed with plenty of wonder and genuine moments of awe.” - Kirkus Reviews
From a series of allusions, disturbing dream sequences, visions, experiences, the author, in the impressionistic form of a daily journal, takes the reader with him on his quest for a new meaning to life
