As I know from personal experience recently, we all have to face some tough times in our lives. Maya Berger knows all about it too, but she has turned her experiences into a debut novel Luna Tree: The Baby Project and today she’s telling us all about it. Luna Tree was published by Create Space on 16th December 2015 and is available on Amazon.
Maya is kicking up her heels, living the fabulous and mostly carefree life of a twenty-something young woman. However, in the back of her mind continuous longing for a good marriage and family lingers. How do you find the right man, the one who sticks through thick and thin? Will he provide you with the things you find essential in a relationship?
Maya kissed a few frogs before finding her Prince Charming, but what followed was of higher importance. She started feeling chronic pain in her lower back, the pain that wouldn’t let her neither sit nor stand. Thus Maya began her relentless quest for diagnosis and healing, which she ended after discovering Energy healing. She travels the globe to receive and raise her own stored Energy, the one that changes everything. Her ultimate desires come true.
Luna Tree: The Baby Project Inspiration
A Guest Post from Maya Berger
Hi, my name is Maya Berger, a 41-year-old woman from Croatia and the author of my first book, Luna Tree: The Baby Project.
My humble opinion is that anybody who has a story to write should definitely write one. With a little help from friends, family, and a good editor, I believe it could really help many people.
I was freshly married to my husband whom I decided to have a baby with, when I got diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. You might think Awful, right? Well, it came as a relief to me, and let me tell you why.
Three years prior to my diagnosis, doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. They were telling me it might be disc protrusion, scoliosis, rheumatoid arthritis… In that period of my life I tried all kinds of treatments: Classical, Western medicine; Eastern medicine; even some Native American medicine – at one point I was lying in this coffin with some sort of holly Native American stick in my hand (life is funny that way, I mean I grew up with physician parents who claimed ‘there is a pill for every illness’, and although I was taking all kinds of pills, this didn’t turn out to be true).
Finally, I was introduced to Energy healing which helped me heal emotionally and physically. I had some deep discoveries about myself and the way I function, insights I wasn’t aware of previously, and I was placed on the path of changing myself inside-out.
It was a miraculous experience that I needed to share with all the hopeless people in the world: People with health, relationship or business issues. I traveled the world in search of my cure, my stored Energy, and shared it with other Energy sources. Writing a book about it helped me center myself, go over all the experiences, really soak in and define what happened. I now only want one thing, and that is for my daughter to be proud of me when she reads our story one day.
The book I wrote is a mixed-genre memoir, something between chick-lit and self-help. I personally don’t like reading books with serious issues that leave me feeling depressed and drained, so I tried to write a humorous guide to recovery. I hope I managed – you tell me 🙂

About Maya Berger
Maya Berger is a middle-aged, first-time mother born in Croatia, at the crossroads of Central and Eastern Europe. She is also a survivor of a rare autoimmune disease that affects the spine and bigger joints.
The daughter of two physicians, Maya grew up feeling she should follow their footsteps and become a pediatrician.
However, Maya did not think much of the school system, and didn’t feel it was good enough to support that choice. As a child, she doubted herself a lot, and chose getting the Economics Degree at the University instead, probably because it was the natural thing to do.
Maya worked in big corporations’ sales and marketing teams for ten years, but decided to become her own boss and started a pilates studio. Today, she coaches energy relaxations sessions, promotes Croatian tourism, and writes books.
