An advertising creative, fiction writer and blogger from Slovenia. I write in Slovene (my mother tongue, of course, I do) and in English (a bridge to global readers).

I've published a short story collection Ne poskušajte tega doma (Don't Try This At Home) in 2012, my story High Midnight has appeared in Noir Nation 3 (VegaWire Media), and The Tribe is one of the stories in Exiles: An Outsider Anthology (Blackwitch Press), Minus 1 was published in BalkaNoir Anthology (Kastaniotis Editions) and The Big Splash in Dark Yonder: Tales & Tabs (Joyride Press). It's All True is my second collection.

I'm also the creator of the International Crime&Noir Literary Festival, Alibi (https://www.facebook.com/AlibiFest/).

Odlično pisanje, ki nudi odlično branje. Dogodki so v detajle preštudirani, od časa dogajanja do forenzičnih informacij. Skoraj popoln zločin. :)

Hi, Zoë!
My nose is dipped into Craig Stone's The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness and the stories in Brit Grit Too. There is a certain Zoë Sharp on my to-read list, as well. :)
