Literary Arts Portfolio
My name is Bernardka Božič, and I create my literary works under the pseudonym Betty B. In a span of just over two years, I have written two novels.
The first novel, titled "I can always count on you," was published by the Obzorje publishing house. Some readers read this novel as a suspense crime novel, while others categorize it as a love story. What I wanted to emphasise through the story was the power of faith, love and trust.
My second novel, The Secret of Countess Barbara Bella, was published (in slovenian language) in 2020 in collaboration with Stella publishing house. In this novel, I combine a love story, a piece of our local history with peasant revolts, Turkish invasions, legends and the life of people in the early 16th century.
