I’m Iveta

Welcome to my website.

I am honored and thrilled to see you here. I am a children’s books author (which I’m sure you have guessed already).
I was born in the Czech Republic and as a child loved pretending being a teacher, only to grow up to become one. My love of reading was enticed by my dad, who would spend uncountable hours with his nose buried in books.
After meeting my husband when working in New Zealand, I settled in this beautiful country. We live in Auckland with our two daughters and two cats. I find inspiration for my book sin my children, but they are also the greatest and most gorgeous distraction from writing.
Have a browse and check out my books. I would love to hear any feedback or suggestions, so please do not hesitate to contact me.

"Fairies. Dragons. Queens. Adventure. Suspense. Sadness. Excitement. What more could a young reader ask for!? Great chapter storybook hitting all the characters my granddaughters love to read about."


"I loved this book! The illustrations are fantastic, and the gentle rhyming story is really sweet. (No pun intended). I laughed out loud at the ending, I am going to share it with my children later. I am sure they will find it as funny as I did. Brilliant!"


"Such a great book about emotions. What I liked about it is that through the story we go through different emotions just in few moments, showing children that any feelings are just temporary. I also liked that illustrations focused solely on representing the feelings to help children recognize them. I would highly recommend it."
