Spotlight On Indie Author Marlies Bugmann
indie author Marlies Bugmann
    

Swiss-born Kiwi, married to an Aussie, living in Tasmania. ~~~~~~ In 1996 I started writing about the Bernese Mountain Dog breed, and not long after, faerie stories came alive on paper. My passion about the rare and threatened Tasmanian fauna and flora inspired a series of six illustrated children’s adventure novels set in picturesque Tasmanian wilderness. ~~~~~~ In 2004 I began translating the first of Karl May’s Winnetou stories. Four years later, in 2008, I became the first author/translator to have translated and produced the entire unabridged Winnetou trilogy from Karl May’s last authorized version of 1909; it is the first publishing of the unabridged trilogy as a homogeneous work by a single translator in English. In 2006 I published the first English Karl May biography, Savage To Saint: The Karl May Story. In 2014, I completed the translation of every Winnetou story written by Karl May. ~~~~~~ Between 2012 and 2016 I designed, wrote, illustrated and published my own Winnetou ‘fan fiction’ work based on Karl May’s famous characters: Out Of Vandaemonia – Winnetou & Shatterhand in Australia. Its companion features the colour scenes I created for Out Of Vandaemonia; the novel is illustrated with the black-and-white versions. ~~~~~~ Between 2014 and 2017 I translated, adapted and illustrated May's most famous romance 'Das Waldroeschen', under the English title: The Rodriganda Romances - Doctor Sternau's Odyssey on Three Continents. ~~~~~~ During April and May, 2017 I collated my husband's cliffs and capes walks photos taken along the Tasman Peninsula's east coast between 1993 and 2017, his bird photographs, as well as my artscapes, and created 8 sinfully large coffe-table books; edge-to-edge colour left room for only the briefest of text to guide bookworms. ~~~~~~ My videos to accompany my English Karl May translations are at youtube.com/CoppingHeights. ~~~~~~ Printed Books Only.

Here are my books

Winnetou, Micro Tales, Hoodies, and the Physicality of Digital Art

Photo book. Digital photography allows the snapping of hundreds of images without having to reload a film after a 36-negative roll is full, and they can be viewed all around the world in a matter of seconds. The digital publishing of written works allows the publishing of books without harming any trees. Tablet and stylus allow for the creation of drawings, paintings, sketches, even watercolours without the traditional mess, smells, and associated clutter of utensils, not to mention the obsolete requirement of space for easel, paint boxes, canvasses or other paraphernalia. It’s a wonderful new experience; create to your heart’s content. Dabble in bold shapes and outrageous colours as long as the electricity keeps powering the computer, the tablet or the app. But there is no physical copy of anything ... this is my album, and when printed, it will be a physical representation of my digital creations.

Inside the Square

Photo book. My art, my way; this album contains a creative process. While photographing the flower, the tree, the wave, the cloud, the beetle, or anything else that attracts my attention, and while taking parts of that image, layering and texturing them, to make something new, in Aperture, in Photoshop, in Corel Painter, or in ArtRage, with fractals, or without, the muse is at ease.

MICRO TALES ~ Passions & Fascinations

Photo Book. A personal non-linear journey—this album holds images I value because each one of them has a story. Micro Tales features moments of fascination, like that for the wreck of the Zephyr in the sands of our local beach, or of passion, particularly for the small bird, the Hooded Plover, at the brink of extinction, exposed to ignorance and dangers, yet valiant enough to defy those hazards. Micro Tales also features impressions from past travels, as well as images from my immediate environment, which have become an integral part of my being.
