Excerpt from Willem of the Tafel

“But love is so much more than that. Love is what we feel for our friends, the people we enjoy being around, who we support no matter what. Love is also what we feel toward our communities, for which we sacrifice so much to make sure that the common good prospers. And love is also at the core of what we feel for our planet, ensuring that we never again make the mistakes of our ancestors.”

Listening attentively, Willem heard the words, but couldn’t really understand the meaning behind them. He had never even met his mother, as she had died soon after he was born, and he never knew who his father was. So how could he love them? In his cohort there were people like Bongani, whom he liked, respected, even feared, but could he say that he’d loved him? The feeling Albert described seemed so different, so elated, so much more noble, and Willem doubted it was anything he had ever felt before.

Hans M Hirschi (b. 1967) has been writing stories ever since he was a child. Adulthood and the demands of corporate life efficiently put an end to his fictional writing for over twenty years.
A global executive in training and channel development, Hans has traveled the world and had previously published non-fictional titles.

The birth of his son and the subsequent parental leave provided him with the opportunity to unleash his creative writing once again. With little influence over his brain’s creative workings, he indulges it, going with the flow.

A deeply rooted passion for, faith in a better world, in love, tolerance and diversity are a red thread throughout both his creative and non-fictional work. His novels might best be described as “literary romance, engaging characters and relevant stories that won’t leave you untouched, but hopeful.”

Hans is a proud member of the Swedish Writers’ Union and the Writers’ Center in Sweden.
