About the author

Joanna M. Pilatowicz

<p>Joanna M. Pilatowicz is an adult&#39;s coach, dancer, dance teacher, choreographer, author, abstract painter, and recording artist. She has lived in Poland, The Netherlands and currently resides in Germany.</p><p>Her master thesis, &ldquo;Expansion Through Dance,&rdquo; explored the concept of using dance as a healing media, positively influencing not only body, but mind and soul as well.</p><p>Life in the Netherlands inspired her to write her first short stories, in Polish language, hiding some of observed reality behind the veil of fantasy. As she says, &bdquo;Passing the borders of reality, I would say I am entering the world of fantasy, dreamland, and paranormal; however it is all still connected to everyday life.&rdquo;</p><p>&ldquo;I was always drawn by what&#39;s invisible to a human eye. At the same time, probably from a desire to understand my own Self and motives more, I started to write diaries which unfolded in an unexpected way. So I just followed it.&rdquo;</p><p>&ldquo;The supernatural creatures in my books and paranormal aspects present there are my own ways of expressing my reality, linking non-fiction with a feeling world as well as adding some sort of higher force to it.&rdquo;</p><p>&ldquo;It is my own metaphor for different roles from our so-called subpersonalities that perhaps want to share their story with us, in order for us to grow, explore, experience or have a more fulfilling life. I do my best to follow these inner voices, giving them space and grabbing their message.&rdquo;</p><p>For more information about Joanna and her passions, please visit:</p><p>www.ifnotdance.com<strong> </strong></p>
