I am Bernard Jan. 


I am your award-winning, multi-genre author, novelist, and poet.


If you looked for me and searched my pen name, then you came to the right 

place. If you were directed here by accident, don't make another Internet 

accident and back away immediately. Bear with me a little bit longer because
I enjoy your company. Who knows, maybe you might enjoy reading my 

pages, too—especially since there is not too much to read here—ha-ha; a lot 

more is treasured in my literary artwork!


Yeah, I dare say artwork because creating something out of nothing requires 

certain skills. And if someone by some miracle or his or her own skills of 

recognizing valuable things likes what you've composed in words, sentences, pages, chapters, books..., then you can say that you have achieved 

something. You created art.

I invite and welcome all of you to read my pages and see for yourself 

whether it is worth it or not to spend some time with me, for everything I 

write, I write it for you. 


I have had a privilege of creating new worlds and characters, and I have 

enjoyed it tremendously. But I know for the fact that there is no greater joy 

than to share what you love with those who appreciate it.


Hopefully, that will be you.


It is not a secret: I am looking for a literary agent who will represent my work in English. You are more than welcome to get in touch with me, unless I get to write to you first. Thank you!

For those curious ones, I am currently residing in Zagreb, Croatia, but not 

that it matters much. My mind is everywhere while my heart is... well, that is 

yet another story.
