About Gigi Sedlmayer

Gigi 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, settling in Munich where Gigi studied architectural drafting and met Albert, marrying him December 1967. Her uncle was a writer, and encouraged her to write.

Since then, her writing has flourished. Improving her English as she went, she entered many writing competitions, receiving back positive results.From her life experiences, the idea for TALON was created.

Our customer reviews

This particular volume of the Talon series is pretty positive, inspirational and uplifting. The metaphors represented by great birds of the condor species, wings and flights are also very powerful, memorable and suggestive in a good sense. At first glance, the reader may think this story is quite obvious and straightforward. However, if you try to read between the lines and explore the hidden messages of the book, you will really learn to enjoy the hard way to happiness and love; explore new opportunities in life, regardless of age; develop your true potential and perhaps attain your dreams. Moreover, this narrative might help both children and their parents understand each other better and 'grow' together in their family relationships. Whereas, oftentimes, their respective roles are being swapped somehow, for better or worse. Overall, I would like to say that this story is certainly very up-to-date and at the same time also fairly timeless, especially because of its pervasive human side.
