My name is Anca. I am a writer and this is my journal of things I enjoy and moments I live. Some real. Most fictionalised.

I was born in Timișoara, Romania. I moved to Portsmouth in 2011 to study journalism, and spent the next couple of years working in trade and academic publishing and getting a master’s in marketing.

Now I’m 27 and live in London, where I work in travel marketing, write surreal & introspective fiction, and do my best at mapping out the future. The last one’s the trickiest.

I write for those who filled my formative years with books and films and magic. For those who saw the fire in my eyes and wanted to play with it. For those who always rekindled my spark when I thought I’d lost it.

For everyone who read my stories before they were even written. You are the reason I’m writing them now. Energy is contagious, and I am so damn grateful.

But first – for the girl I’ll never be, for the girl I almost am. Every story is about her. Even the ones about other people.

Welcome to my playground.
