Magical realism - among many others G.G. Marquez and my last "love", Diana Gabaldon, the Outlander series.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I do not have one. I like ... normal books.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Promoting on my weblog and Facebook until now...
Describe your desk
I do not have one. I do possess a kitchen table where I normally write.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
In a magical town in the north of Romania, called Vatra-Dornei. The town has become one of the most important "characters" in my writings. I call it "the Snow-Town".
When did you first start writing?
As a child. And officially on my weblog in 2012.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It's Effi's story. A little girl who loses her father to suicide and tries to forgive him an the past.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The passion for writing.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Time will tell :-)
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing itself is a joy. Although a long difficult process, it still amazes me how I feel whenever I read something I have written.
What do your fans mean to you?
Readers make books alive.

Effi is a peculiar girl. She lives with her grandmother, mother and brother in a small town in the north of Romania. Her father is a sporadic but desired presence. He comes and goes and appears at the most unusual moments. One morning he shows up unexpectedly and involves Effi in a project: building a man made of fireworks. But fireworks, although a delight to the eyes, fade away irrevocably.
