Writing is therapeutic. Putting into words the thoughts that have lived rent-free in one’s mind is a freeing experience. Exploring that freedom and the faith that led him to it is the lauded poet and author of “Aqua Girl,” Andrew Madare.
Featuring a collection of well-written poems strung from his soul, Andrew is one of the rising authors on Amazon. His wit, style, and finesse splayed on over three hundred pages of literary fiction is a determinative start to a bright writing career.
Born in Moldova in Eastern Europe and later migrating to the United States of America, Andrew Madare carries countless stories from his travels and his experience as a foreigner in a country he calls home.
Moving to the United States was a risky decision for the young artist but his passion for writing poetry spurred him to action. An adventure awaited, and the pot of gold lay in the celebrated land of hope. He could not refuse. So, seven years ago, Andrew Madare journeyed outside Moldova’s borders and stepped foot into a new chapter of his life.
As a quiet and introverted person with infectiously high amounts of energy, Andrew Madare was a contrast in and of himself. Despite his enthusiasm in acquainting himself with the country’s culture and people, his reserved nature held him back.
The internal war brewing within him drove pen to paper, and, recording his inner conflicts and the struggle to find balance in himself, Andrew Madare found himself writing his book. “It was something that happened unconsciously,” he reveals. “It was the only way I was free – when I was writing.”
His reflective and personal work soon took an exciting turn when he met his muse, a bartender named Vera Sharapova – Aqua Girl in the flesh. Interestingly, the name Vera, as researched by Andrew, is “faith” in Russian. As a firm believer, the budding author knew meeting her was too much to call “coincidence.”
“I had a lot of unpleasant experiences because of lack of knowledge or experience and, usually, what gets me through is blind faith – I’ll make it through.”
As the moving factor to improve his craft and the face behind his latest work, Andrew has dedicated “Aqua Girl” to Vera Sharapova. It reads, “This book is a tribute for a girl so amazing and influent that she can change people’s lives to be better. Vera Sharapova (Aqua Girl) gave me the courage, the inspiration, the motivation to find myself and be the one I was meant to be.”
Published last July 4, 2020, the brilliant and heart-wrenching collection of poems has garnered considerable interest from its audience. Since its release, it has placed within the 300,000 mark in Amazon’s Literary Fiction (Books) collection and is also rising in rank in the Literature & Fiction section of the Kindle Store.
A five-star review of the book submitted by Maxim C. from the United States commends Andrew’s original and exciting content. “I highly recommend this book. The author has a very unique style of writing. Check it out for something different and really captivating!”
While growing his audience and considering a sequel, Andrew Madare continues to work as a truck driver and an up-and-coming innovator building a mobile platform where users can generate profit by providing skill-based services. The project is called HelpMe-Feel the freedom and is designed to help people gain financial stability and independence.
