I have an academic career behind me (philosophy, history) as well as various practical, down-to-earth jobs, extensive traveling and reading. My literary style and choice of themes have been compared to Umberto Eco. I also have extensive experience in film scriptwriting, and have designed and run my own three-year course on narratology. I am not a native English speaker and this always requires adittional help with the scripts. What you see here is my original way of writing English.
