Who are you? What do you do/study?
I’m Merle, 21 (much to the surprise of a lot of people), and born and raised in Hamburg. I’m currently in my fourth semester of studying British and American Literature as my major and History as my minor.
What or who inspired you to start writing?
Tough question. I always loved stories and started writing short stories when I was about 12 years old. Unfortunately, I was too impatient to finish any of them and stopped writing altogether. Ultimately, I think that I rediscovered writing in university and my love for the English language. I guess, writing in English just suits me better.
I would absolutely love to write like Haruki Murakami or, though totally different, Toni Morrison but that’s just one of my many (pretty unrealistic) dreams.
A random fact: I always have to sneeze when I look into the sun. Not only once but about three or four times. I think my personal record is six times.
