Anna Mattaar has written stories ever since she knows how words work. She went to art school, where she studied something complicated about games and theatre. This helped her look at storytelling from several interesting new angles, but somehow she keeps returning to the written word. She lives in a small town in the Netherlands and is currently writing for a computer game and working on several fantasy stories.

I might or might not come up with something else after it's finished. The story started out as an alternative perspective on one of the genre's traditional plot lines, but has since gotten a life of its own. You can read more about it here: http://www.annamattaar.nl/en/index/th...
There's a downside, however, for those not reading Dutch: it'll be in Dutch. Sorry.

I do plan to write and (hopefully) publish one or more short stories before Thaoryn is finished, and at the moment I have plans for at least one Dutch and one English. As if those weren't enough stories to keep my mind occupied, I'm also working on a computer game (http://www.annamattaar.nl/en/index/he...) and a LARP (http://www.annamattaar.nl/en/index/xe...).(less)
