    This week I’m talking to Dana Petrovic about her book, ‘Vana’s Adventure with Mother Earth. It’s a book for kids who want to engage with Mother Earth in all her form and mysterious beauty. The main character is based  on a group of children she knew when she was a young person living in Germany.

    This week I’m talking to David V Mammina an award-winning indie dark fantasy, self published author from Long Island, New York. USA. His books include, Angels of The Resistance and Protector of Children and Redeem the Knight to name a few.







    David’s books are set in post-apocalypse, fantasy realms as well as present day. He believes writing is a craft, a living spirit that buries itself into the heart,mind,body and soul of the readers. The words I’ve used are pretty much David’s own, so let’s talk to him to get an insight into this young man’s literary works.
