Dinko Kadi- author

Almost ten years ago little pup came into our lives. His first instinct was to run around with his clumsy feet and search entire apartment. He is family companion ever since and our pack got bigger meanwhile. I’ve been avid short stories writer long before Oscar came into my life. Professionally, I’m an editor in technology magazine, ex TV journalist and with breef career in daily newspapers and radio. When my family expanded, one of the best ways of bonding with my son was reading. World of children books and picturebooks lured me, and step by step the idea for Adventures of Oscar the Beagle came, partly because our beagle hound is full of inspiration. Sometimes mischievous, sometimes adventurous, never boring. Real life experiences with dears and rabbits, wondering off, endless play time became basis for a series of books. Entering the world of children literature changed my perspective on writing process. It’s experience I would recommend to every aspiring writer.
