What would a trip to San Francisco be without a look at the local bookstores? I’ve researched a couple of them before the trip and it was a good idea. I looked for the most local ones and ones that had some history. And I wasn’t disappointed! Here’s my quick tour of four bookstores I […]

I have a story to tell. Long story short: in 2010, NaNoWriMo changed my life. Now the short story long. In 2010, I was attending university but when I entered the third semester, I knew I no longer wanted to continue with my studies. History of Art was sorta fun but I couldn’t imagine what I’d do with the […]
You can’t get any praise without some criticism, that’s what I learnt from Lynnda Pollio, whom I met in New York this summer. Two years after she published her book, Trusting the Currents, she sold a few thousand copies and won 12 awards. I met Lynnda on a hot sunny day in New York close to Union […]
Roald Dahl is one of my favourite authors who never fails to inspire me. Last summer I visited his museum in Great Missenden and learnt a lot of interesting facts about the author.

It’s hard to believe that September is here already. Where has the summer gone? I think it’s a question we all ask when we wake up in the morning and the weather is surprisingly dull.

Perfect for warming your heart while hugging a cup of tea.
Unplugged This summer, I had a big break on social media. I didn’t post anything for about 1.5 months, out of blue, without giving any notice. I was in New York and suddenly, I became so tired of everything that I couldn’t even bother to look at my phone. Posting on Instagram seemed pointless. I […]
A Crazy Idea New York book reading of The Girl Who Wanted to Catch a Cloud in a Marmalade Jar went exactly the way I never thought it would go. From the beginning to the end. When I had this idea to do a book reading in NY, I knew I was crazy. But I […]
The much awaited adventure of the summer has come true. After 6-months of planning, organising, and creating connections in city I’d never been to before, I hosted a book reading of The Girl Who Wanted to Catch a Cloud in a Marmalade Jar in San Francisco.
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. Each book event gives an opportunity to discover one’s dreams in a different way. London In […]
