Caroline’s Sacrifice


Czech Republic

Peter Barlach loves to entertain and has written for most of his adult life. He puts much effort into the characters’ history and their development.

All people carry a history and has some kind of luggage, which shows in his characters. And through the course of events, and interaction with others, one will always find that his characters grow and develop.

He has an easy to read writing style and Peter Barlachs motto for writing is fitting: “Deep and yet not heavy. Light but still not shallow.”

Peter Barlach has previously written scripts for film and theatre, and books for teens, among others Not Just Tennis (Inte bara tennis) and I am Caroline (Det är jag som är Caroline).
