About me

I’ve written fantasy stories since when I was nine and I discovered that stories make me feel better.
Especially fantasy stories where characters find magic in themselves that they didn’t know they possessed and with that magic they overcame fear, loss and sorrow.
My stories are fantasy, but they are also firmly set in history. They tell of events that truly happened, but they have a magical twist.
The magic my character discovers in themselves doesn’t come from a power source. It’s magic that originates within them. It comes from intuition, from the mind and especially from the heart.
It’s magic that we all possess. We just have to discover it inside ourselves.
