A Novelist, not a short-storyist

I’m a daydreamer with wanderlust and a BA in Japanese language and culture. As a single child, I needed to come up with something to entertain myself when friends were unavailable to play. Thus, I’ve been making up stories since a very young age. Imagine my surprise when, at 13, I found out there are some very fortunate people whose job is to write down the stories they made up! That realization was a turning point in my life, when I decided to be a novelist.

Naturally, I immediately wrote a duology. Then followed a stand-alone novel. Because I was aiming to be a novelist, not a short-storyist.

Whoever said to start with baby steps, didn't know me.

But life had other ideas and writing took a backseat for a while. I graduated high school, then went on to acquire a BA in Japanese language and culture. Then I found a dayjob and continued to write whenever I had time and energy. Another turning point came in early 2019, when I had the opportunity to try out full-time writing. So here we are. I’m on my adventure to see if I can make a living writing full-time, because I want to write stories, so you can escape reality, have fun adventures and unexpected romance in faraway lands. And you don't even have to leave your most favourite armchair.

Join me on this journey! Help me realize my dream and become my Patron, so I can continue to write full-time, for you. You can even read ahead while I write, are you interested now? ;)
