I'm a native French-speaking person living in Belgium who, crazily enough, writes fiction solely in English. I fell in love with the language when I was a teenager who had already devoured all the cartoons and books in French that she could, and had no other choice but to turn toward those new and fascinating English-speaking TV channels we were lucky enough to get via the cable in the 1980s.
Avid reader of Science-fiction and Fantasy, I worship JRR Tolkien, Roger Zelazny, Carolyn J. Cherryh, Jack Vance, Ursula Le Guin, Tad Williams and Robin Hobb, not necessarily in that order. I also love manga and Japanese animation. Among the titles that stayed with me are Saint Seiya, Shoujo Kakumei Utena, Tenku no Escaflowne, Arslan Senki, Violonist of Hamelin, Made In Abyss, Mahoutsukai no Yome, and many, many others. Last, but not least, I get a lot of inspiration from watching (way too many) TV series. Among those, I'll always cherish and love Babylon 5 above all others.
A rather long time ago, I graduated from the Liege University with a master in Computer Science and a teaching degree, after getting an undergraduate degree in Engineering. Interestingly enough, when I started out on my first job while still spending a lot of time writing, my mom told me she knew I had always been more of a literary person than a scientific person!
Greece is my second home, and one of my many sources of inspiration, the place where Time bends just a tiny little bit to my will, and I can write to my soul's content.
Also, I am an unrepentant cat-lover, and a woman of passionate opinions who tries to get involved with helping to make a better future for Europe.
