Rich, layered stories with a touch of magic
About the books by Regina van de Berg
Regina van de Berg’s books and stories are published by Red Thunderbird Publishing.

I love rich, layered stories that make you think and in which a touch of magic is not lacking. Stories in the magical realism genre (Isabel Allende) fascinate me because they push the boundaries of what is true and what is not true. I like to play with that myself.
I am also fascinated by Dutch people who have emigrated to another country to try their luck. That is a theme that recurs in All the Women in Me. Just like my stories often deal with powerful women and how they came to personal development.
Because I have travelled a lot, especially to America and Canada and in recent years also Indonesia and currently England, other countries play a role in my stories. For example, read this blog about the ‘travelling’ book All Women in Me.
Publishing agency for rich, stories that make you think
Although I did make two attempts to get my book published through a publisher, the urge to do it myself was just as great. From my background as a writer and communications consultant, I already knew a lot about the process, including layout, editing, production and promotion. The rest you learn quickly when you immerse yourself in it and rely on professional support. Red Thunderbird Publishing was born: a publishing house for rich, stories with a touch of magic that make you think.
In the future, I am open to (modestly) publishing other people’s work, if it fits in with my publishing philosophy: rich stories with a touch of magic that make you think.
