Who am I? Answering this simple question has always been the hardest thing to decide for me. As long as I can remember I have admired people who know exactly who they want to be, what work they want to do and which goals they want to achieve. It must be heaven, I keep thinking, to wake up in the morning and know exactly what to wear, what to do, what to say. I have always struggled with that.
Mind you, I am not socially awkward. Thanks to my upbringing I know how to interact with people in personal and business relations and I have come to rely on that. I am sure, most people wouldn’t guess I feel self-conscious a lot. I just quietly take in the situation and adapt.
Adapting may well be my greatest skill which brings me back to the initial question: like a chameleon in a hall of mirrors—who I am when there is no background to mimic?
There are some obvious anchor points. I think a lot, I read a lot, more than I write. I am empathic, and interactions between people fascinate me. Witnessing acts of love and inclusiveness makes me burst with joy while abusiveness and cruelty can reduce me to tears. Nothing frustrates me more than ignorance. I love learning new languages, recipes, digital art. We should always learn from history, but I find our future much more interesting. With my writing I want to help build a world where everyone is welcome.
And maybe that’s all you and I need to know about me.
If you would like to support my writing, I would much appreciate you buying me a coffee at ko-fi.com:
My current goal is to be able to hire an artist for the paperback cover of my latest novel Worlds Rising: Rebellion.
Thank you so much ❤
Love and peace,
