I was born in 1946, in Liberec, former Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic.
In 1971 I graduated from the Law Faculty of Charles University in Prague. After years of tedious work, in a profession which I never liked, I emigrated to Canada in 1983; partly for freedom and partly to find myself.
I started out in Montreal, where I had to learn about the many difficulties of emigration and learn two languages, French and English. After that experience, I took the time to explore my spiritual growth. At the time I wrote "The Queen of Tulips" I had been living in Toronto but later I moved back to Montreal, where I stayed for many years. Finally I settled down in a small and beautiful town in Ontario, on the shores of amazing Lake Huron.
“The Queen of Tulips is a lovely collection of fairy tales with strong moral messages and modern themes. The book is made unique by its use of settings and characters from around the world, which keep each tale fresh and exciting”.
