I’ve been falling in love with words for as long as I can remember. Words, crisp sentences, stories that let you explore places that didn’t exist before.
Despite my BA in Political Science and PhD in Anthropology of Gender, my career revolved around writing, albeit the kind that doesn’t always feed the heart.
I’ve lived in Slovenia, Germany, Belgium and Brazil. I currently live in Belgrade where I write full-time.
My short stories have been shortlisted/longlisted in various contests, published in anthologies and licensed for audio:
My story ‘Three Roses’ was licensed for LeVar Burton Reads Podcast
Quarter-finalist on the Screencraft’s Cinematic Short Story competition 2022
Longlist at ‘The 2020 Exeter Novel Prize’
Highly commended in the Michael Terence Publishing Summer 2020 Short story competition
Among 12 winners of Grindstone’s 2020 Micro Fiction Prize ‘12 Apostles’
Shortlisted on Grindstone Literary Flash Fiction Prize 2019
Long-listed on Fish Publishing Short Story Prize 2018/19.
