Royalties from the sales of belgradestreets in 2015 were donated to the orphanage for abandoned children, ‘Dom za decu Vera Blagojevic’ in Banja Koviljača.
I was left speechless by the two pictures that the children provided to me as a thank you.
In turn, I thank everyone who has purchased copies of my book, and my publishers at Komshe for helping make this possible.

I’m very pleased to post this modest plug for my good friend Neil Howie, who amongst many other things is the Chairman of the British Society of Serbia.
Neil, and his colleagues, look forward to meeting you tomorrow at 6:00pm at the Helga Bar, Gospodar Jevremova 50, Dorcol, Belgrade.
More information can be found on the website and Facebook page of the British Society of Serbia, click, look and let Neil know if you plan to attend.
Hope you are able to attend – only sorry I can’t do so myself, but there will be another time!
One freezing cold day in January 2011, I arrived at this airport, tired and anxious about the future
I had no idea how much my life would change because of this city, and the people who live and work there
The book was a lucky break
I will never be able to to give back what the city and the people who live there gave to me but I will never stop trying
And thank you to Komshe for all your support

Sometimes we all have to paint a very big line on the street.
And choose where we stand.
