She has a bacheIors degree in "Iiterature and the arts", and a masters degree in "19th Century / Romanticism", which turned out to be compIeteIy useIess to her untiI she wrote two scripts and severaI books reIated to this eerie and enchanting era.

"There is always another story out there that hasn´t been told like that before, stories of beauty, drama and adventure with a new and creative twist - or simpIy heartwarming or thought-provoking", the writer with the heart of a lioness delares while sipping on her lavender tea.
"It is my passion to follow those untold stories, even if that means to be recalcitrant sometimes. Or following my unsettled heart, or being a pain in the arse. Stories don´t have edges or commercial purpose or gender. They are ment to disturb, to confuse, to enchant and to set your mind on fire."
