Writing has for a long time been a part of my creative expression.
The sense that I have got something to share is what motivates this playful writing. 

The joy and love for the written word has taken different forms throughout the years, and has now translated into a genre that I have named: Spiritual literature.
But the secret lies not in the words, but beyond them.
I hope that my writing will be perceived as not only entertainment for the mind,
but a recognition to that within that the story so often are pointing to, which is the essence of all my stories. 
This place within that the story emerge from.
This place that I call the heart.

Read a brief summary and some reviews below:

"Meet TigerLily and let yourself be inspired by the story's vibrant New York setting. Against the backdrop of this fast-paced city, the young female protagonist discovers ways in which to re-unite her physical existence with her innate spiritual nature. The city that never sleeps, causes a profound stir in the young woman. We follow her as she emerges from the dream of the everyday reality and enters into a state of greater wakefulness.                                                                                                        Her awakening is the beginning of the end of everything she once believed to be true.   A tale that entertains with its dynamic exterior, but that also succeeds in drawing the reader deeper into the more reflective intuitive interior. The reader is taken behind the scenes,beyond the story-line, to a place that can be defined as the "the inner essence". The place where the tale has its origin. A warm, inspiring book filled with wisdom and humour. A book that was written not just to be experienced with the senses but even with the heart and the soul."

”Iren Rinmad is one of the coolest people I know. Without knowing how much or which parts of her book is autobiographical, the detailed story that starts in New York's fashion world and finds its way to Yoga and self-awareness,is an exciting journey to follow.”

”TigerLily is a unique story and genre with an exciting plot and thought-provoking insights that make you want to read more and more. The book's wisdom and life-lessons make you stop and reflect which is one of the reasons why it is very hard to put this wonderful book down once you've started reading it”.

With a true insider's view, Iren Rinmad manages to capture the contrast between the cliches of New York's fashion world and a stray soul's search for meaning and context. A story that pulls you in and makes you stop and reflect."

”One of my favorite books in 2018 was TigerLily, early spring bloom. 
A book that the author herself describes as spiritual fiction/litterature.
It was a wonderful story about TigerLily who lives and works in New York but who starts to feel that something is missing. Is this really what is important in life? 
I love the depth and the spirituality that permeates the book. And the environmental descriptions in New York and Iceland are captivating.
I would like to say that this is a chick lit with surprising depth, that made me several times during the reading (I read it three times during the year)stop and just sit and think about how we can influence what happens in life and on what is really important to me.”

I started this book last night and devoured it all in just a few hours. The book is like a mix between Sex & the City and Siddharta, where you can follow TigerLily and her fast-paced life as a fashion assistant, with little stops in her thoughts about life. 

The book is very beautifully written and contains many deep reflections about life and about how to find one’s own way. The book feels real and not far out and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read a novel with that little extra! 

I would love to read more about TigerLily and thank you @iren.rinmadfor this nice reading experience.

Incredibly beautiful book!”

This is no ordinary book. It is a nice and special book full of humor. The book is about TigerLily, who lives a fast life in New York but who somewhere begins to feel that something is missing. She starts asking the question, is it really the most important thing in life?

The book's language is good even though it took me a while to find the flow in the reading because it felt like the text was jumping forward.

Iren succeeds with the environmental descriptions and conveys what life is like around TigerLily.

Every little thing in our everyday lives can turn into a great wave of impressions that we don't always know what to do with and don't always feel so good about.

We would all feel good to stop and just be in the present! To not just rush on and take the next step. Maybe we should just be still and actually enjoy what we have a little more!

Do you know the reading experiences that make you completely empty of words afterwards? 

TigerLily was such one for me. 

The book is about TigerLily, a young woman who seeks herself, seeks peace of mind, and finds it through meetings with people and by exchanging learned habits towards those who feel healthier. In the book you get to follow TigerLily’s spiritual journey, that really makes one start thinking about how hectic our lives actually are, and that we more often should stop and discover what it means to just Be. 

This was a book I really needed to read, and I can imagine it will be well suited to me in twenty years as well!”

”This book was really something new to me, I have never read anything called ”spiritual fiction” before. I have to say I was very pleasently surprised! 

The book is about TigerLily who is living a stressed life in New York where she works in the fashion industry. It is a hectic life situation with travel, meetings - always something. We follow TigerLily during a spring where she goes through a soulful journey and discovers an inner consciousness. The book is very well written and makes me think of things I never otherwise give a thought. Recommended!”

”TigerLily, early spring bloom” is a spiritual journey, but also a rare walk through New York and Island. At the same time it offers an insight into the stressful fashion world.
The book is very easy-going, restful and full of uplifting messages that turn your thoughts inward.
It is not a book to stress read but rather take a deep breath and just enjoy. 
An existential gem.”

“Let me start by saying that this is a totally wonderful book. I really liked it. In TigerLily we follow a young woman with the same name as the book, who lives in New York and works as a fashion editor on a fashion magazine and lives a hectic life where everything must happen now. We follow TigerLily during a spring of awakening to consciousness. I was totally captivated by this book, especially because of TigerLilys all contemplations. How beautiful but also how hard life can be. Iren Rinmad has an incredibly beautiful and simple language in the book. The short chapters made the book feel very relaxing and that you had time to reflect on what you just read. A book to recommend!”
