A Deeper Look or The Legend Of Dwarf Nose is a children's book that invites the whole family on an exciting journey to find the answer to a simple but yet one of the most enduring questions: what does true beauty really mean?
The purpose of that book is to enable and support children by showing them what true beauty is, not according to today's modern societies criteria, but according to our heart.
I wanted to share this story not out of vanity, but because I really believe that in telling it I can speak to those who need to hear my message the most. I just believe in it with my whole heart.
This is a combination of vivid images, prose and poetry. I believe that these mediums, combined together, activates children's imagination in unique ways.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE STORY
Surrounded by blue fjords and high mountains lays a beautiful fictional town, Kronstad, with narrow cobbled streets, vibrantly colored wooden houses covered with red roof tiles, a farmer's market and an old wharf.
Outside of Kronstad, on a hill with a magnificent view of the whole town, the fjords, and the forests, we find an opulent castle-like mansion, owned by the town's richest man, the widowed Baron Rosendal. There is where we discover Stella, the Barons' 17-year-old daughter, left in the care of domestic staff while her father builds his empire.
She is planning her greatest victory - winning the town's most prestigious beauty pageant. Stella believes that good looks are one's greatest source of pride and dislikes everything that falls under society's definition of "ugly".
Until the day she encounters a grotesque outcast. Like others, Stella is horrified and disgusted by his looks. Until she realizes that she is the only person in the whole world who can help him become the one he once was.

A former marketing consultant, I worked for big corporations throughout my career. One day, I realized that my passion for storytelling was more important than the pursuit of a corporate career. I quit my job, found a part-time job in a kindergarten and started to write for children while working with children. Being surrounded by kids both at work and at home (I have an 8-year-old son with a lot of friends visiting our house every day) allows me to be close to my audience, get incredible ideas from that very audience, to better understand their feelings, their emotions, their interests, and what they care about.
