My Journey to the Ocean is a Love Story. It's about love in all possible representations, forms and masks it can wear. It's a love story of a girl in her 20s, looked back on by a woman in her 30s, who is also trying to take a peek into the future. It's an ageless book, it's a border-less book, it's a book that focuses on and laughs at our cultural differences, yet sweeps away all man-made boundaries on its way. But first and foremost it is a story about a summer away from home, it's a story about falling in and out of love—it's a story about the author's Journey to the Ocean.  


The novel has hit the Amazon bestseller list quite a few times, and the story of the book's creation was picked up by the Associated Press and featured in many publications across the nation and beyond.


My Journey to the Ocean can be purchased directly from the author or on Amazon in both e-book and paperback formats.

Elena's life is a dream come true. She just married the man of her dreams, Chris, after a summer of whirlwind romance, her new husband suddenly came into quite a bit of money, and they have nothing but bright and shiny skies on their horizon. Except... there's this girl. She's not Chris's ex. She is his best friend—which is way worse than an ex. And there is Alex—Elena's scorned ex-fiancé who has all the rights to hate her guts. Throw the Atlantic Ocean separating the newlyweds, woes of immigration procedures, as well as omnipresent fears and insecurities, into the mix—and you got a perfect setup for a truly challenging—and truly amazing—first year of marriage. The only question is—will Elena and Chris's love survive it?

This auto-biographical novel is about coping with one's most deep-seated fears. It's about living with your guilt for following your dream. It's about one unforgettable Year in the Sky.

This book is a sequel to the first novel in the series—My Journey to the Ocean—and can be purchased directly from the author or on Amazon as e-book and paperback.

Elena and Chris are happy, madly in love newlyweds who just moved in together after a prolonged, dream-like honeymoon that consisted of jet-setting around the globe and meeting for romantic sojourns in exotic locations. Now they can finally be a normal family who share the same household! However, as excited as they are at first, they find that Ms. Reality can be a bit trickier than they thought. Will their Big Love survive everyday existence riddled with commonplace problems like work, finances and getting used to living together? Does Big Love even exist or is it indeed nothing but a beautiful myth for gullible fools?

This novel is comprised of colorful, humorous excerpts from the first five years of marriage that focus on obstacles almost all couples stumble on as they navigate unpredictable waters of marital coexistence—jealousy, insecurities, ego versus togetherness and the big question of whether or not they should start a family. As you join Elena and Chris on this crazy ride that whisks you away not only to the romantic American South, but also to Saint Martin, Mexico and the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, you will laugh and cry along with them; you will undoubtedly recognize yourself in them as they try to put together this mysterious life-long puzzle; and you will, hopefully, answer for yourself the main question this novel poses—does Big Love really exist, and if it does, what can you do to keep its flower alive?
