I believe words are magic...

Welcome to the official site of Ivica Duricova, author of business and fiction books.

I wrote my first fairy tale when I was 7 and since then I haven’t been able to stop. Compositions for school, poems and short stories, most of which ended up buried in my drawer, but not all...

My first big success came shortly before graduating high school. There was a Pan European literary competition for short sci-fi stories written in German and I won. Maybe this was one of the reasons I decided to study German at the Masaryk University in the Czech Republic.

I could have become a teacher but writing was still a very important part of my life. In the end, instead of teaching languages, I became a professional copywriter and established my own company called Adlervia. After a couple of years, having written hundreds of copies, I felt that it was time for another step in my writing career…The books.

Up until today, two have been published. Both are business books but deep down inside, there is still a little girl who has always wanted to create new fantasy worlds and amazing stories which could inflame one's imagination and awaken one’s curiosity. Now, no longer 7 but 30, I wrote my first fiction book which has been translated into English.
