THIS IS A book combining the fictional work of more than five years to shed light into our human endeavours of Romantic Love – where it arrives at fascinating psychological insights about our emotional, cultural and spiritual core programming.

Each of the seven pieces seduces into different cinematic worlds of people living and so portrays the full scope of their sadness, mystery, magic and humour from seven entirely different angles:

I. THE MINISTER’S WIFE tells the story of a woman who’s trapped in marriage to a guy she’s never been in love with and the ironical setting of a party where everyone gets pissed on red wine is the backdrop for her finally meeting someone else …

V. POTATO MASH PSYCHO continues the format of the short story. This time, a handsome man meets a kindhearted woman in a park and although they like each other a lot, due to him having been abused as a child, the man loses the plot and kills her …

VI. SUCCUBUS is a humorous tale of a successful DJ / Producer who one day stumbles upon the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen and with his eyes wide open and his whole being drawn-in he succumbs to her extraordinarily addictive vampire charms …

VII. OUTER SPACE EDEN finally sees Adam and Lilith (the ‘first woman’ before Eve according to suppressed parts of scripture) heading for a space mission as sisterly cosmo-biologists to discover that true, unconditional love could in the end be a possibility …
