I have weird stories to tell. Probably because I was born in Transylvania. Telling stories to myself since I was 4. Moved to Bucharest at 19. To Amsterdam at 31. Writing since leaving Romania two years ago, so bear with me.

They're romances with a twist, told in a fast, self-parody style. Not very serious.
