Andra claims it’s her father who’s to blame, reading The Hobbit to her at bedtime when she was seven. All her fantasy and Other World obsessions started from there. Growing up in Asia, she caught the usual afternoon kiddie anime series on TV after school but the beginning of a love to last a lifetime for fiction and fantasy came via Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1988 movie Akira which she saw when she was eleven. A decade and a half later in London, after many more anime series, Dragonlance books, Darkness: The Gathering artwork, through high school and hand-writing stories into notebooks with a mysterious penchant for getting lost by the folks who “borrowed” them, comic books, graphic novels and Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, she’s still at it. Still dreaming, still writing.
