Bruno Roggen

Biography

Dear reader,

Thank you for showing your interest in my work. It's an honor and a pleasure.
I am Bruno Roggen, living at Anhée, Namur province in Belgium.
After my teaching career I devoted myself to writing and studying. I would like to characterize myself as a story teller. That's why most of my writings are short stories. I occasionally write poetry and I also finished three novels.
My subjects are diverse, but in general I'm always writing about "the human condition" and relations between people.
I'm mainly writing in English. However, I wrote in French too as well as in Dutch, be it to a lesser extent.
As to my present studies, I took courses in Creative Writing at Oxford University and at this particular moment I'm taking an on line writing course at Mt Jacinto University (Ca).
Allow me to wish you lots of reading pleasure!
If you would like to contact me, I'm on Facebook and LinkedIn. My email: brunoroggen@yahoo.fr
