Meet the Author

Alenka Co is an uncommon name for an uncommon lady. She moves through life with a quiet grace and beauty that is a reflection of her deep love of dance but not a formal disciplined dance, a natural carefree spirit moved by music and emotions, a love that she has shared with thousands of children over the years and an uninhibited natural grace that , I believe , is seen in the many thousands of photos I have taken of her over our life time together.

To the outside world she is often seen as a quiet private person but I have been privlileged to see the wild abandoned passionate side also , this is a woman who lives and feels life on a very deep level, moved by the simplest things and a champion of the downtrodden. Angered and outspoken when confronted by injustice or cruelty, critical of the callous and uncaring world of politicians and any others

She despises false compliments and flattery but sincerity and honesty are her most treasured prizes, cannot abide fools but shows compassion and tolerance and concern for those less fortunate or gifted , again seen in her quiet manner when working with children.

Her love of literature is reflected both in her insatiable appetite for books and constant search for quality writing and writers and her unrelenting critical assessment of her own work.

Writing does not come easily in the sense that near enough is never good enough for her own work it must be right , it must feel and move with the grace and beauty of life as she knows and values it , to flow from point to point ,idea to idea and as naturally as water flows. All her words are chosen, examined and placed carefully often being pulled out and replaced if they jar , revised and rewritten time and again until it is "right"

Her love for life , words and movement is reflected in her writing.

Her wish in offering her novels is not wealth or fame but to share this love of words as she shared her love for dance with so many so she wishes to share her worlds of people and stories she has created, the characters are her children , her world as it should be but also with all the tragedy, humour, love and passion that exsits in her real world

It is an impossible task to describe a person as complex as Alenka in these few words

I will finish by saying she admires modesty and is very self-effacing and abhors and detests bragaddacio and the modern idea of selp promotion of getting out there and selling your work and yourself ,public speaking would terrify her if it was for her own benefit yet I know she can stand and talk for others easily, which is why I have to write this for her.

"my works should survive or fall on their own merits not on my ability to sell them and myself"

Alenka loves natural and real and hates fake and contrived I think it shows in her writing

So in the end you the reader are to be the judge and jury of her work, its worth

Ron Co
