When I was fifteen, I stayed home to write a fantasy book instead of going with my parents and my brother on vacation. Now I’m thirty and wrote two fantasy novels, countless poems and stories and co-published a book with ethnographic studies about the relationship between globalization and regionalization in alimentation.
I felt the urge to write fictional short stories after reading Neil Gaiman’s fantastic short story-collection “Smoke and Mirrors“. If you haven’t read it yet, you should totally do. It opens more worlds to you than one would have thought possible.
