5.0 out of 5 stars Action and inspirational. Recommended., December 6, 2015
This review is from: Talon, On the Wing (Kindle Edition)

422 heart-warming, positive, inspirational and uplifting, pages by very talented author Gisela (Gigi) Sedlmayer.

This is book 2 in the TALON series. Gigi Sedlmayer narrates the adventures of disabled main character Matica (or is she very ENabled?) with her condor friend, Talon.

From page one, readers are pulled into the story. The adventures begin and what Matica has dreamed ever since she first befriended the condors is actually happening – she is flying with her beloved bird.

Avid readers will enjoy reading TALON: ON THE WING, and learning more about Condors, missionary work in a small Peruvian village, and a girl with a handicap.

This well written book grabs the attention of readers. Accomplished wordsmith Gisela knows how to write books and adds smiles to faces.

These TALON books are family books – clean, delightful stories of a family and village and their relationship with a very special bird. They are interesting and stimulating, inspirational stories of love, hope, courage, trust and friendship.

Add these books to your library. Buy them, gift them, share them, enjoy.

A well-deserved five stars.




About Gigi Sedlmayer

Gisela (Gigi) Sedlmayer was born on 19 May 1944 in Potsdam, a suburb of Berlin in Germany. Her family escaped to the West just before the infamous wall went up. They moved around in Germany until finally settling in Munich where Gigi studied architectural drafting and met Albert in 1965, marrying in December 1967. She worked as a civil draftsperson in various private consultancies in Munich. Since her uncle was a writer, she tried to write short animal stories herself. Nothing further came of it, but she developed a love for the written word and started to consume books. In May 1975, Gigi and her husband moved to New Zealand. Because of language challenges, she started a handicraft business. As a specialty, she made colourful parrots of which she sold thousands in a few years. In 1988, they decided to adopt and became adoptive parents of twin girls the year after. They lived in New Zealand for eighteen years and moved to Australia in September 1992. Two years later Gigi was diagnosed with cancer. After operations and radiation, she withdrew, thinking that she would probably soon be dead, like her friend who died of cancer, but her two little girls gave her the courage to keep going. After a few years, still among the living, her brain started to work again, so she thought, 'Get a grip on yourself and do something good with your life'. She remembered the time she wrote short stories and got inspired again, seeing her husband Albert writing the story of their adoption. Her English became increasingly better so she pressed on to develop her creative writing. Albert taught her how to use a computer and she wrote many short stories. She entered them in competitions and often got very good reports back, which gave her confidence to go on writing. One day the idea for the TALON series came to her and she spent the next several years bringing the story and the characters to life. She now loves writing and spends most of her time at the computer, developing new story lines. She also loves travelling, 4x4 touring, swimming, gardening, handcrafting, reading, fossicking and enjoys good adventure DVD's or going to the movies.
