I have won several important national and regional awards for literary work as well as for theater work (for children and youth). I was an invited guest speaker at numerous international readings, festivals and book fairs in Berlin, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Dresden, Vienna, London, Edinburgh, Rome, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Budapest, Bucharest, and Canary Islands.
My work has been included in international anthologies of poetry and prose, such as (Best European Fiction, Surfacing-Contemporary Croatian Poetry, Les Femmes(se)racontent, A todos nas falta algo-Antologia del cuento Croatia, etc.)
Three of my stories have been made into short films (Sedam neodgovorenih poziva, Balavica, Tresnje); one was made into a graphic novel (Danijel Zezelj: Ljeto); and my novel “Adios Cowboy” was adapted and performed as a theatre play.
