The Rabbit Culture” tells the story of the adoption process of a 7-year-old Romanian boy after the fall of Communism. Written in a direct, vivid style, the novel explores a variety of subject matter , like : overpopulation , religions, politics , open adoptions etc..etc..

What genres would you say this novel is in?

Narrative nonfiction , religion , politic , nature

How would you describe this story in two words?

Natural Order of Things

What movie have you seen the most in your life?

Pretty Women

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

‘Blowin’ in the wind

Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

The Odyssey

What motivated you to write this story?

Share this true story with people. I want readers to take away from my writing , that we humans do we do part of the same Pack; that Christian, Muslim, Jew, Baptist, Buddhist, etc … are adjectives of the most important thing: “The Person”. That the only law that is given us to know is that of “Natural Order of Things”. That religion is a purely personal, and that it is good that God remain in the background and that no one has the presumption to elect himself His representative on earth .That for more than 2000 years we have been slaves of the worst kind: mental slaves of the so-called prophets or spiritual leaders. As we know, the Olympus collapsed …. it is very likely that in this century will inevitably fall even the Holy See, Mecca and the Wailing Wall.

If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?

Socrates

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Flight , I am a fire fighting Pilot ;
Scuba diving

What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?

In many cases, the adoption of a child inevitably has many problems due to the trauma of abandonment. I wanted to share my experience with both the couples who are planning to adopt a child and be with people, seeking the root causes, which often have to do with nature, religion, politics, etc. .. etc. ..
I was forced visit many of the darkest places of human nature, and I have learned to appreciate and enjoy many things that are often taken for granted, only because the benevolent fate bestowed them upon us.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Novel Reading of Briar Earth (Chapter 59 – Balcony Diplomacy) by Paul Tapp

Performed by Val Cole

Get to know the writer:

What is your novel about?

Reluctance, tradition and coincidence. They bring together as princess and escort, an opiniative ‘silly girl’ and a ‘handsome captain’, who fails his diplomatic mission to keep her silent on contentious matters at her fox-hunting debut. A puppy hound and a missing fox-cub confound the biggest fox-meet of the year and bring an end to the cruel tradition.

World’s collide.

Summer Wine

Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

The Woman In White (Wilkie Collins)

What motivated you to write this story?

As a kid I watched my grandpa and his dogs race rabbits to their
burrows. He’d dig them out, apologise as they squealed in fear, wring their necks. It was his living. So too for many over the centuries, is the tradition of fox-hunting. It was a cathartic journey to understand the fear of the fox … and the concomitant respect between the hunted and the hunter when a beagle puppy discovers a fox-cub hiding in a manor stable.

If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?

Angelina Jolie. Just sit and sip coffee all night would be great.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

International polemics in a complex, selfish world that will destroy everything we love.Family documentaries.Investigative journalism.

What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?

Nice to hear someone read something I have written. To see if they ‘get’ the nuance in a chapter without the perspective of the full novel.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Don’t pitch to an audience. Write to appease something within.
Re-write until all paragraphs say ‘yes’. Writing is a private journey to somewhere. Collect fellow travellers along the way.
