Writing is something that makes me feel alive. Always has. No matter the genre, language or topic, it clears my head and keeps me going. I’ve done different jobs in my life (journalist, marketing specialist, museum worker, teacher, manager, etc.), and always looked for and created opportunities to write – poetry, non-fiction, fiction, reflections, lyrics, newsletters, radio and print news, press releases, articles for magazines and newspapers, public event scripts, greetings, speeches, toasts, blogs, and captions for photography and paintings.
It was November 2006 when, for the first time in my life, I found the courage to present my creativity. A Christmas present to myself and for the important people in my life: a small poetry booklet „Lihtsad sõnad“ („Simple words“). Only 100 copies were printed, but about 25-30 of them were destroyed in a house-fire in March 2007. As far as I know, only one library in the world has it – the rest are in private ownership.
Therefore, I consider 2020 as the year when I officially became an author. On the 28th of May, after eight weeks of efforts in Scotland and Estonia, it was out: a bilingual inspirational book #õnnelikteekond #becominghappy.
In December 2022, I self-published The Alphabet of Life, a book as deep and versatile as I’ve been often described. And beautiful.
As a ghostwriter or a collaborative author, I’ve written many more books, and you can find them in the My Books section.
