I am a reading addict and a romanticist living in the wrong century.
History and reading are two of my biggest passions. I find it extremely exciting to dive into books, to discover interesting facts and stumble upon mysteries. On this website, I share summaries of my studies. On my Twitter account, I'm sharing paintings, illustrations, tales, objects and nice-to-know historical information: all things past or imagined.
You will also find book reviews on here. Most of the books I read are from the 19th century and before, since I love to lose myself in the age before computers, smart phones and traffic jams.
Ever since I could bring recognizable words to paper, I have been writing stories. In my short stories, you'll recognize my discomfort with the modern world. I am influenced by everything I read, but my main heroes are Victor Hugo, Mark Twain and John Steinbeck.
I hope you'll enjoy what you'll find on here. Feel free to send me feedback via e-mail or on Facebook!
