In a future months I am planning to returned to Finland and work at second part of my project. After good reviews of my book about Finland I realized that readers in Serbia are interested in my literary experiences and they are interested in Finland, as well. So, I decided to work on fictional novel about Finland, about women artist from Serbia faced with another artist, Finnish tradition, way of living, traditional values, poetry and myths and contemporary art, as well. I am going to work at 250-pages long novel, in Serbian languages, for Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian readers.
