A little bit about me

I might be into computers, but programming is most certainly not my only passion!

I was born in France, then I moved to the Netherlands in 2006. My mother is French, and my father is a Tibetan refugee from Nepal. Fun fact: both of them are natural lucid dreamers.

I started writing short stories when I was little, about anything and everything, really. It was all in French, at first, but I quickly switched to English in my teenage years. Publishing a fantasy novel in the world I built has always been my dream, and when I finally got the time (and motivation), I got the writing going. I always found traditional high fantasy to be quite monotone and was hoping to give it a fresh new look! I self-published Kingdom Ascent in 2020, the first book of the Tempest of Bravoure series.

RPG games like Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age, Assassin’s Creed have been my greatest source of inspiration. I’m also addicted to D&D, as player and dungeon master. I love Sci-Fi, Fantasy in general, and if I need something else, I read a good psychological thriller. I’m a big fan of fate-of-the-world arcs and meaning-of-life sort of stuff, those scenarios really drive me to write. And when it comes to music, Power and Symphonic Metal definitely do it for me.
