Writing life-inspired novels in my retirement, and living in gratitude with The Man (how does one EVER retire from being a psychologist???)


Background Information

Retirement is a delicious time in life; it gives us the gift of owning our time. It is also a time to reflect about what the journey is all about, and pass on beleifs and inspirations (some may call it wisdom; my kids don't) to the world - from the closest and near and dear to our hearts, to strangers in all corners of the world - with ebooks. 

In short: I have moved from being a transmitter of knowledge (as in being a lecturer and author of various texbooks), to telling a good story without references and totally subjectively (being a fiction writer).

But once a psychologist, always a psychologist, I guess...

My first novel TURQUOISE, inspired by life experiences, is out. It is a passionate love story. The second, EMERALD, is in the making. It is about remaining in loving with the beloved.
