In the Urban Desert


“I’m once again running away, only this time it’s consciously, out of choice. I choose to run away with my personal nature toward the nature of the whole. I throw myself into the sea of infinity, believing it will carry me to my safe harbor, a place only mine, somewhere on the island of dreams we all share.”


In the Urban Desert is a romance journeying to one’s inner child. In artistically well-organized descriptions that move back and forth between theatrical-prosaic scenes to poetic heart-wrenching sensitivity, the reader sails along with the protagonist in the blaring urban reality to find the natural and free “self” hidden at the core of one’s personality.


The voyage begins and ends with the child we once were, the one we most often abandon in the desert of our souls. Returning to childhood experiences is painful and grueling but is also healing and vital. Through the people the protagonist meets in his adult life, he learns that the best way to survive a life so challenging is to make those long-lost childhood dreams come true.


“I read this and enjoyed every second. The writing is exquisite and original, and I savored it all.”– Galila Ron-Feder-Amit, celebrated Israeli author


The Book of Arkovia


The spiritual leader and Guru of Arkovia, is dead. Obsessed with his final decree, the Arkovians segregated themselves from their neighbors and their gates remain forever closed to the outside world. Until one Arkovian dares to think differently. To disobey. To love.


The Book of Arkovia offers a timeless message of hope and inspiration. A modern philosophical classic, the Arkovian journey and its unique characters teach us the importance of self-image, unity, and the pursuit of true freedom in the face of oppression.
