Ice-cold lemonade,

Words like sunshine in my head,

Summers sweet escape...

(Astrid F. Schneider Haiku-inspired poetry)

Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese verse, comprised of just three lines.

Despite their brevity, haikus capture the essence of a moment or a feeling. Finding inspiration in the simplicity and elegance of haiku poetry is also part of the Wabi Sabi lifestyle.

Fun Fact: for me as a writer, it is a great exercise since I always carry pen and paper with me, I can train my eye and write everywhere, even if I only have a few minutes...

Short stories have always been sources of inspiration and entertainment. They have the unique ability to transport us to distant lands and times to come or gone by, while teaching us timeless lessons about life and human nature. In this book, I have created stories that contain the essence and charm of personal development.

In Alina and the baby seal a joung woman overcomes her fear of water and learns to swim. Will this get her closer to the sailor, she has been secretly in love with for a long time?

Marie's time out deals with a best friend turned into enemy, a lot of self love to develop and the strong bond of husband and wife.

In Networked, a young couple prepares for their wedding. This is the 1. chapter of a novel I still want to write and a text I was able to read in Hera Linds (Bestselling German Author and fantstic human being) romance workshop. Her feedback was amazing and let me walk on cloud 9 for quite some time. Here is what she said: "Sounds a bit like JOJO MOYES"

The seventh time itch deals with a very sarcastic sense of humor, does love have a chance in this toxic situation?

Gwendoline's highschool sweetheart is about fidelity and second chances...

Reading a real book can boost brain power. Do not take my word for it, look it up!
