Find me and other amazing (LGBTQ+) authors in the Literary Lounge: Here readers can interact with authors about their books, but there's also space for talk about other topics!

"Writing's 10% inspiration and 90% transpiration."

Some say literature can change the world. I believe it can't, but it can change people and people change the world.
Writing's my lifeline, but reading's easier (I'm a procrastinator), so for now, it's mainly short stories and poetry. Writing enables me to get to know the world and myself and to handle it all.
Since I'm Belgian (Flemish), I mostly write in Dutch, but I have a bunch of LGBT+ one-shots, a completed novella about a queer, demiromantic and asexual vampire, and an ongoing novella in English about a gay divorcee. If you write something LGBT+ (and it's not horror/thriller), hit me up for a critique exchange.

I am part of the rainbow (she/they, queer and ace spectrum, aro questioning) and I celebrate my fellow rainbow people on this profile, so send me a message if you want to!

I'm also a violinist and a classical music nerd (there are very few non-classical songs I like) and I hardly watch any movies/series/shows, so don't expect that kind of references. I'm a literature and language girl all around (I'm doing my bachelor in Ancient Greek and Latin) and I love history and art and philosophy and science and anything intellectual, so you're welcome if you want to chat about those topics.
