Who am I

Born in Romania, in the seaside town of Constanța, I am an Eastern-European transplant to the heart of Europe. Luxembourg is currently my home, where I live and write.

I fell in love with books and stories at an early age and throughout my childhood and teenage years I would read anywhere and anytime I could.

When I was 10 I wrote my first poem and then went on to experiment with this literary form for a while, until I decided to settle on prose. Poems still crop up from time to time, though, including as song lyrics.

My short story “A Night at the Library” has recently been published in the “Esch – Lieu des Mémoires” collection, celebrating the people and places of the Esch-sur-Alzette town in Luxembourg.

The collection was launched on the 14th of May at the Esch-sur-Alzette Library, within the “Nuit de la Culture” event of the Esch2022 – European Capital of Culture project.

Another short story, “The Golden Key” is going to be published in the first Luxembourg Anthology of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
