It took me a whole ten years after finishing my studies to admit to myself that computer science was not what I wanted to do in life. As time passed and I drifted farther and father away from my line of work, I kept feeling guilty for not using the degree I had worked so hard to get in the beginning of this century.
Well, not anymore! Computers will always be a good distraction, but writing is the way to go for me and I'm well set on this path. I first got published exactly five years ago. Since then over 25 of my short stories found their home in various magazines, and I also contributed to 7 anthologies. I have two Romanian traditionally published books and three self-published English titles with another one on the way. I won a bunch of contests and awards, too. Yes, I think I'm doing all right.
So celebrate with me while I blow out the candles and pop the champagne. And if you buy one of my books and leave a review, you will make my day. No, you can't have any cake. But check this space because there will be an announcement later this week and possibly a cover reveal too. Cheers!
