About the author
I've always loved books, and I've always wanted to see the world. I read compulsively in my childhood and teenage years, but traveling used to be just an unrealistic dream. Many years had to pass before I could pack my bag and set off on my first journey abroad, but it happened in the end.
Since then, I've visited many countries and met many amazing people of different nationalities and cultures. We worked, and learned, and played together, and I've gained some wonderful friends this way. My life would've been so much duller and paler without them.
Books and travels have made me who I am. And my family, of course, but that goes without saying.
As for my books, I write contemporary novels about people facing various difficulties, sometimes battling their inner demons, sometimes starting anew from scratch and struggling to fit in, searching and fighting for love, lost but finding their way with a little help from their friends and family. Throw in the motif of clashing cultures, customs, and world views, and the unavoidable mess and growth such a clash brings about. And since I'm an incurable dreamer, also the obligatory HEA.
P.S. As you may have guessed, Magdalena Stanhoff is a pen name. My real name wouldn't fit on any book cover, and besides, most of you wouldn't be able to pronounce it anyway.
