Read My Mind, the free blogger magazine!


Available in December 2021

Goodbye summer, hello fall 2021! After ending my blog summer series “Corona & Creativity - Q & A with international blog guests, it is time to write and format my annual blogger magazine Read My Mind. 

If you are looking for a free, inspiring, and educational read, check out my previous issues from 2017 to 2020 on my website or click here on the magazine cover below and dive into a happy, positive, colorful, and inspiring world. 

In the 2020 issue, you will meet my adorable and cute Lily4Refugees Ambassadors and you get a look behind the scene of our making-off illustrations for our delightful stories “The Carousel” and “Love & Loyalty”.

In the 2019 issue, we took you to the Italian Book Fair in Rome and to our book promotion tour throughout Italy and the United Kingdom. We also listed all the libraries in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and the United Kingdom, where you can find a copy of my memoir “The Stolen Years in Zurich”. And we introduced you to international self-published authors and their amazing books. 

In the 2018 issue, you find articles such as “Authors, don’t let the social media numbers fool you”, “Authors, please stop selling yourself short”, “Authors take better care of your mind, body, and soul”, “Caught in a circle of illusion - Instagram”, “Publishing books - fiction versus nonfiction”, “The Next Generation”, “Walt Disney”, “The Fairy Tale King”, The Kingdom of Italy”, “Maria Montessori”, “Carlo Colodi”, “Mozart & Strauss” and great film reviews. 

In the 2017 issue, I wrote about the bestselling authors Danielle Steel and Nicholas Sparks and how you can turn your book into audiobooks and shared interesting interviews with inspiring artists, international musicians, and writers and published a spiritual article “The other side” and an educational read about “Self- Acceptance and Self-Respect” and my controversial article “Damn Pharmacy, Damn “Pain” Killers!” along with fascinating film reviews such as “The true story behind the world brands Adidas and Puma”. 

As you see there is a lot to discover. I hope you enjoy reading my mind! ;-)

FYI: The links to our shop at society6 and to our audiobooks on CD are no longer active. Both of my audiobooks Teddy & Lily and Bon Voyage are available in several download stores and our merch and collections are now in our brand-new shop at RedBubble

Why we love traveling!



Traveling is the best way of self-education. Visiting new places, spending time in museums, galleries and historical buildings like castles and palaces is exciting, refreshing, and inspiring for our minds and soul.  

People who don’t travel a lot are surely more likely narrow-minded and blind-sided about other cultures, mentalities, lifestyles. tradition and religion. Traveling also means witnessing and reliving history. Being in historical cities and places is like time traveling!

Unfortunately this non-ending and horrible pandemic is stopping us for now from making new memories and experiences in foreign countries, but at least we can still escape by reading educational and inspiring books, listening to audiobooks, and of course watching interesting documentaries!

If you haven’t listened to my audiobook “Bon Voyage” yet, it's time to catch up. Relax and get away from home by listening to this funny, educational and sweet story narrated in British English for young and young at heart listeners who are interested in learning about the beauty and history of the European Countries!

Why we love Teddies!



The older I get, the more I realize how extremely hard it is to find honesty, loyalty, and integrity in humans. Family members and relatives are nothing but a huge disappointment and all you are left with are heartwarming and clueless childhood memories.

Most of our relationships and friendships end because of jealousy and dishonesty. There was a time when I really suffered because of damaged and broken contacts, but meanwhile, I don’t care. Relationships with family and relatives as well as friendships are a two-way street. When there is no love, respect, caring, and honesty, there is no relationship at all. And that’s one of the main reasons why many humans prefer relationships with animals (cats, dogs, and birds) than with other humans. Humans can be a waste of time, energy, and feelings.

In my story “Teddy & Lily, True Friendship is unconditional loyalty” young and young at heart readers learn the values of true friendship and meaningful relationships. The story in print and as an e-book is available in English, German, Italian and Spanish. The audiobook is available in English in several download stores.

As you can see, we love Teddies. They are a symbol of friendship, and even my gorgeous birthday cake this year was a Teddy Cake. My beautiful mum formed the two adorable teddies for the top and center of my delicious birthday cake. Happy Birthday to me! :-)
