"There is no greater joy than to share what you love with those who appreciate it."—Bernard Jan

My pen name is Bernard Jan. I am an award-winning, multi-genre novelist and a poet from Croatia, and I have released five books in English. I am a winner of Readers' Favorite Honorable Mention Award 2021, Readers' Favorite Gold Medalist 2020, and Readers' Favorite Bronze Medalist 2019.

"A World Without Color" is a true story of the last three days I spent with my cat, while "Look for Me Under the Rainbow" in a unique and gentle way sheds light on the plight of harp seal pups in Canada. It warms the heart of all readers concerned about our planet and its treasures. "January River" is a heartwarming cross-genre novel about five friends, one dog, and one river carrying a secret that will upheave their world. "Cruel Summer" is a gripping young adult cross-genre novel about an abused teenager from New Manhattan who only wants to skate, but they have other plans for him, and "Postcards From Beyond Reality: The Selected Poems of Michael Daniels" is a young adult poetry book written in character as the hero from my novel "Cruel Summer" (unfortunately, cannot upload my poetry book on AllAuthor).

My first two books were written at the beginning of the war in Croatia in 1991 amidst air alerts and illusory attempts when I wanted to believe and think that life is normal, that everything is all right with the world. I have published five novels, two novellas, and one book of poems in Croatian. Four of my books, including the book of poems, were translated into English.

I am passionate about (reading) books, music, movies, skateboarding, inline skating, animals, ecology, helping others.

My desire to help others came to the fore during my years advocating environmental protection and advocacy of animal rights. I did volunteer work for the refugees because suffering does not know any borders. When it comes within your reach in your home, you simply have to do something.

As part of my animal advocacy activities, it has been a great honor and pleasure to translate "Eternal Treblinka: Our Treatment of Animals and the Holocaust" by Charles Patterson into Croatian. My other two books translated into Croatian are "Don’t Believe Everything You Think: Why Your Thinking Is The Beginning & End Of Suffering" by Joseph Nguyen and "The Himalayan Masters: A Living Tradition by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait".
