sepia1I am writer of fantasy and children tales. My favorite genres are sci-ficcion, fantasy, vampires and children tales. Tales and novels are "my job" (as well as homeshcooling my son), the articles of this site are my hobby. I am an ecologist, and I try to approach it as a quest for personal change. That's why  instead of wishing for the entire human race extention, on behalf of the planet, I try to improve my little corner of the world :) Bhudism helps me to keep things in perspective.... but I am still a serial plant killer!
