Merima and the Media:
I am passionate about community, as an interviewer this time; I speak with members of our local community about their impressions of Sunbury.
Here is the Hay house Radio interview sound file. The interview with Jenn Morris was a very enjoyable experience. Jenn encouraged me to keep forging ahead.
Beginning in my local community, I have had the good fortune to be interviewed on our local radio station 3NRG 99.3 FM.
My husband and I made a book trailer which I currently being updated. My YouTube channel will soon expand with a new slant on the trailer and an author interview, hoping this will be done in a month or so.

An another article published. I am so happy. it deals with the deeper purpose of writing a memoir from my personal perspective.
Great news I have just received my first review from Midwest Book Review
Critique: An impressively well-crafted novel by a master storyteller, “Schicksal” is a work of fiction that is inspired by and based upon a true story of a Serbian soldier and a German nurse during the dark days of World War II and the ravaging of Europe. An inherently fascinating read from beginning to end, “Schicksal” is very highly recommended for community and academic library Literary Fiction collections. For personal reading lists it should be noted that “Schicksal” is available in a Kindle edition ($3.99).
The Leader Newspaper interviewed me promoting my book, search Family Story comes to Light 05/05/2015.
Balboa Press included my article on their blog. I hope to encourage other authors to explore self-publishing in a supported environment.
I also got an article in The Magic City Morning Star published. It is about one of my passions.
I shall share book signings in our local Library and some in regional Victoria when the dates are finalised. Hoping to share some of the wonderful experiences ahead of me when they arise. Just a parting word, I think it might be true.
