The book readings in San Francisco and New York looked like a big step forward, maybe even a leap too big to make. Yet there I was – plane tickets ready for six months and everything arranged.
It was mid-May when I went on a talk with Diane Hinds, How to Promote Your Book. As I was leaving, I was wondering what it takes to be a recognised author and professional. It’s one thing to be featured in the press. But then I started to wonder: is it all that it takes? I started digging deeper into […]
This year has been a breakthrough year in my writing. Since I published my children’s book The Girl Who Wanted to Catch a Cloud in a Marmalade Jar in late April, I started to wonder what people really dream about.

I occasionally work from coworking centres and more often from coffee shops, but it’s still the same. There’s no boss who will make you work on time. No one tells me what’s […]
I love nothing more than having a great cup of coffee. Well, except for a wonderful, fine-grade matcha tea. Since I don’t have an espresso machine, high-quality tea is easier to prepare. And if you don’t know what matcha is, know that it’s your new cup of espresso – only greener.
