Writer, traveller, everything enthusiast. Also political scientist, because life is always more fun if you mix things up a bit. A Scot with a European heritage, I've lived in Belgium and the USA - and want to live in at least 2 more countries.
I read and write the same way, with a focus on characters. You can have the most interesting plot in the world, but if I don't care about the characters then I don't care about the story.
