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
