Florian is a very special fly, who was born in the little town of Briedel on the Mosel River in Germany. His quest for life, adventure, and courage bring him face to face with many of the dilemmas facing species around the globe. His purpose is quite clear, to always help displaced, threatened, or endangered species he meets in the countries to which he travels.
I chose to use a fly for my hero, as they are common everywhere, can go unnoticed, and as a result of their small size, can use a variety of transportation to get around.
I was born in Germany many years ago. Just before I turned 9 years old, my mother and her husband moved us to Florida, where I arrived not speaking a word of English! There was much for me to learn. It wasn't always easy, but persistence, patience, and a strong will to learn allowed me to succeed. Much later, I became a teacher of Foreign Languages and Science! I love learning languages and nature, both of which make life very interesting. Those are Florian's characteristics as well.
The first adventure brings Florian from Germany to Florida, hence the reason for the book being written in English and in German. The 2nd adventure will be written in English and Spanish, as Florian returns a beautiful butterfly back to her homeland. This story should be available by October of this year.
As Florian travels the world over,
each story features cultural, historical, and environmental facts about the places he visits.
Join Florian on his adventures! Please furnish me with your email address so that I contact you with more information, should you wish to be kept informed.
