 “We must learn to value people for the goodness of their soul not for their wealth, fame or appearance.”

I -‘m a writer, illustrator and a Tai chi and Qigong teacher. I also play music and have an interest  in mental and physical health, neuroscience and cosmology.

 Another interest of mine is food an cookery in a social and environmental context. My interest in this subject comes from having worked for decades in the catering industry in all sorts of positions. This subject is covered and treated in my website

As for my writing since childhood I was fond of allegorical literary works and images of fantasy that contained some constructive teachings and hidden meanings as well as a sense of humour.  Therefore as one is often influenced by what one reads and likes my writing could be somehow defined as being constructive philosophical fantasy with humour.

At first impression my works may seem to be children books but the style of the illustrations, the titles and characters of my stories are deceptive because at the roots they are allegorical and philosophical works that look at humanity through a variety of subjects and human activities and offer practical solutions to its problems. Another characteristic of my books indeed of whaterver I do is that it covers my interest in metaphysics or how the universe and life work and why they work in the way that they do. In short what is the meaning of everything that exists is what drives me.

I publish my works in Amazon kindle under the umbrella name of Astralia Wisdom Works a name that indicates that my works are about the cultivation of wisdom.

My first book was: ‘The Cat That Became a Footballer’ , an allegorical, humorous work that uses modern football and sport to look at humanity through the eyes and mind of a cat.

My second was: ‘The City of the Guardian Angels’, a modern fairy tale focused on waste, recycling with a touch of spirituality.

Cake Maker'sMy third one was: “A Cake Maker’s Story” : a lively work with important messages for the world and present and future of humankind  blends several genres such as science fiction, science, poetry, music and dancing with a lot of cakes. A very unusual book indeed

A new book titled “Meditations of a Controversial Cook” is in the pipeline It will  be my first non fiction work as it will contain a series of of essays on human society and its future relative to food and eating. Other books of poetry fiction and non fiction are also ready to be published.
