Alessandrina Lerner is the author of four books. All 3 of her Poetry books, "The Essence of Love" (Sep'09), "Spiritual Metamorphosis" (Feb'10) and "Have You Seen My Childhood" (Mar'10) are adorned with beautiful illustrations made by the author's daughter, a precocious 10-year old Artist, Amandine Love Lerner. Alessandrina's poetry does not only use the poetic imagery and innate musicality of words but also aspires to take the readers on a journey to the core of themselves through inspirational poems of a meditative nature. Alessandrina is also the author of a novel, "Spiritual Enlightenment in the Age of Cybersex" (Dec' 09), a comedic spiritual gem which introduces Spiritual teachings with humor and a real urban flavor, making them accessible to a modern, and maybe a little less spiritually inclined crowd. Alessandrina Lerner has been writing poetry since she was 8, and wrote her first short novel when she was 12. Though she left her childhood dreamworld, obtained an MBA in International Finance from French Ivy league University Paris IX- Dauphine, and went on to pursue a high profile career in the world of International Finance, Alessandrina never forgot her true love and kept cultivating a passion for writing all throughout, continuing to write poetry and short stories as a hobby, whenever time allowed. Traveling to over 55 countries in the context of her career, she fulfilled the explorative part of her dream, yet found herself seeking more meaningful experiences to further nourish her soul. Motherhood pushed her further in that direction, propping her to quit her job and start training with a Spiritual Indian Master to become a Yoga Therapist, now her primary occupation since 2001. Having grown increasingly passionate and talented in the Art of inspiring others through Yoga, Alessandrina decided to take it to the next level by going back to her roots and honoring her true essence by dedicating herself to writing. Since writing books seemed like the most logical step to disseminate the spiritual knowledge she has acquired on her journey, Alessandrina has decided to embrace her new path with love, dedication, and the greatest hope for the future. Alessandrina is currently working on a number of literary projects, including children books, a spiritual movie script, a Yoga manual, and sequels to her first novel. She has many other artistic projects in the pipeline, which she intends to fully dedicate herself to in the coming years.
My influences come more from the self-explorative path I have chosen than from my readings. I have read all the literature of a wide range of philosophers and sages, and have explored all the classics and influential writers. Yet, at the end of the day, I find that nothing replaces first-hand experience when it comes to my own writings.
I have decided to take a short break in my writing after publishing 4 books in the short span of 6 months. I am still writing Poetry almost daily but as a new author, I feel like it is time for me to focus my energy on promoting my work and getting the word out. This is extremely difficult, and at times, almost frustrating for me, as I love writing and feel like "something's missing" when I don't. I have come to realize that expressing myself through my writing is part of me... As soon as I feel like I can't take it anymore, I will resume writing... As of right now, I have a Spiritual Novel that's almost finished, another Poetry book well on the way, and 3 unfinished sequels to my first "Spiritual Comedy" just waiting for a little free time... I can hardly wait to go back to it!
Currently awaiting Submissions' feedback from my first Agent
Future Publisher TBD
Everything sparks my interest but Music, Sports, Yoga, Meditation and all Literature that deals with the Mind, Consciousness, Quantum Physics, etc... is of particular interest to me. I love life and as such I honor everything in it!
