Project info

My next book, the third novel I have started to write earlier this year is half written. It is a short novel with working title Lovers. Time spent in the residency will allow me to finish this novel. Residencies like this one help me very much since that is the way to find time and peace away from the daily routine and obligations. In all my previous residences I have been working on books as well.
