 My editorial services: books and manuals writing

 I write non-fiction books which are funny and creative, for both children and adults. I also do work commissioned by Publishers, Literary Agents and Editors looking for the best in the field of education and entertainment. My main topics and areas of concentration are: Cognitive sciences, Recreational mathematics, Brain training, Optical illusions, Self-enhancement, Visual art.

 My editorial mission

 My work responds to the essential needs of all readers big and small, whether they be: to instruct, to do, to marvel at the world we live in, to train one's brain, to experiment, to discover, to play, to communicate, to laugh, to test oneself, to solve problems, to explore new ways using the trial and error method, to create and acquire skills, to avoid boredom, to share with others... and above all to find pleasure in reading!
