Imagine a 28-year old Latvian woman who graduated from the Medical Academy of Latvia with a physician's diploma in her pocket 4 years ago.
And instantly turned to writing "fantasy" books for the kids and not only...

Now, after those 4 years, I have 3 books published and 1 in preparation.
My first book "Monica and the Forest" (Monika un Mezs" in Latvian) won the award in Latvian literature contest "Preses Nama Gramata" in 2002 and was published by "Preses Nams".
The second book "Monica and the Progenitor of Diamonds" (Monika un dimantu ciltstevs" in Latvian) was published by Jumava, one of Latvia's best-known publishers in 2003.
My third book "The Dormouse's Year" ("Susura gads" in Latvian) was published by Jumava as well in October 2004.

My books are loved by both - kids and adults - all those who love mysteries, intriguing events, interesting characters and happy endings...

The first edition of my first book "Monica and the Forest" is currently sold out. The second book "Monica and the Progenitor of Diamonds" became one of the best-selling books of Jumava after it was published.

Therefore I am completely sure that my books would be loved by all "fantasy-addicted" kids and adults in other countries as well, not only Latvia.

Interests: Currently I am interested in finding an agent who would like to sell good-selling Latvian children's "fantasy" books to the world!
