My short biography:

I was born on September 12, 1965, in Split, Croatia.
At a very young age, I started reading. I loved it because, through books, I traveled to places I could never visit in person. As a child, I loved fairy tales and adventure, but later I discovered other genres. When I found a Jules Verne book in the library, I became fascinated by science fiction. I’ve written poetry for fifteen years and later started writing science fiction. Lately, I’ve written children’s fairy tales and fables.
I’ve published, in Croatia, “An Opened Heart” in 2002, “The Sleepy Way” in 2005, and “Love” in 2006. On Amazon I have published the poetry collections “The Child of Happiness” in 2015, science fiction novel “Godeena” in 2015, the science fict

Hi Al,
I have friends who are my followers. As far as I know, you can be a friend and a follower at the same time. I have reviews from friends and followers, and I've set up book reviews. I've recently accepted friends who send me a friendship request or I'm sending a request. At Goodreads, it's no problem to be a writer, to have friends and to follow other writers, or to write reviews for other writers. :)
With respect

Poem from my new poetry book

A brief memory

We forget,
it's human,
we remember happiness
we hide our sadness behind a smile,
but to be human,
stay just your own,
seeks courage,
in which the soul,
seeks survival,
on this blue planet,
is the core of life.

Todd Simpson Hi Stjepan,

You have certainly shown was a great writer you are, with being able to write not only Sci-Fi, but Poetry as well. Plus being able to do both very well. I just read 'When the moon takes over the dream' which I really enjoyed. After spending 7 years in the Navy, my favourite Poems were those where you mentioned the Sea.
Best wishes Todd

Hi Todd,

I must tell you that the book "Gedeena" is not thoroughly proofread. Currently, books proofread and I think you'll find a lot of errors and strange phrases that are not in the spirit of the English language.
I hope you like my book, and I wish you a pleasant reading.

With all dual respect,
Stjepan

Arthur You should check out Michael Veloff on Google+. He has written in Serbo-Croatian, but writes mainly in English. He lives in Ohio. You can tell him I suggested that you contact him.
