About Dragana

I was born in Bosnia and raised in Croatia. At the age of five, I was present in the 1993 War when Croatia fought for its independence and was moved around to many different refugee camps. In 1995, I was accepted to live in Germany at a refugee building until the War calmed down. Four years later, Germany returned me to my Country, and I lived inside an apartment with remaining bullet holes. A year later, in 2000, my family was accepted to move to America. When I arrived here, I was already a seventh grader and didn't speak any English. I never had long term friends, part of it was the constant moving around to survive. I was bullied a lot because I did not speak the language, but I knew my family came here for a better life, so I did my best by teaching myself how to speak, read and write it. I worked hard to get through school, and was the first one in my family to graduate from College. First, I obtained a LPN degree, however, I realized it was not something I wanted to do forever, therefore, I went back to school and graduated with a Bachelors in Technical Management. For the past five years, I have been a High Risk Adult Felony Probation Officer for the largest County in Ohio. I looked back at my life, and realized how far I have gotten on my own, and what I am capable of, even with all the setbacks I had in life. This made me realize that I do have the ability to fulfill my actual dream as a novel writer, and screenplay writer. I currently have two novels released, Secrets in the Woods beyond the darkness and Secrets in the Woods betrayal of Arfabele.
I am also currently working on my third novel, which is about the 1993 Bosnian War I was present in, how I survived it, and the struggles I was faced with as a refugee and an immigrant. My goals are to write novels in which can be transformed into motion picture as well as creative screenplays on their own.

I have a great imagination, but the best qualities I hold are hard work, loyalty, dedication, learning fast and the willingness to always improve at whatever it is that I am doing. I have a lot more projects to provide you with in the near future. All I request is for you to give me that chance.
Thank you very much for your time.

Unique traits: I am persistent, consistent, think skin, loyal, dependable, creative, open minded, able to work under pressure, discipline, passion for films, networking, friendly, and always looking for the next challenge.

  • Secrets in the woods betrayal of Arfabele

    Secrets in the woods betrayal of Arfabele Drama Fantasy Left behind by her mothers murder, given away by her father, and betrayed by the ones who raised her. You can only imagine the anger going through her mind, her veins, and her body. Revenge is the only thing on her mind. Lucky for her, she has the powers of a Dark Zal, the skills of a Klexon, and the mind of a human. Having the ability of using all three against the ones who cross her path makes her unstoppable, however, the more she had things her way, the more she felt like something was missing. The revenge began to feel not worthy, and the heart began to seek for something else. Why was the anger confusing her? Why was the pain playing games with her heart? Why did she feel like she was loosing even though she was gaining back everything that was ripped away from her? Well my friends, during the time of our anger we don't see the entire picture. We don't take the time to step back and think why the things happened the way they did. Most importantly, we need to take a step back and find out what is more important to us, the revenge or the finding inner peace. Kayla was definitely pushed to do some damage in this screenplay/novel, but she was also misguided by the wrong person talking in her ear. A past with scars shows future beauty marks.
