Born and raised in Romania, in a family of book lovers and storytellers, Olivia studied marketing, did photography, and worked as a journalist for a newspaper and news television network.
An unapologetic citizen of the world, she spent a few years in Sweden, France (which will always have a special place in her heart), and more recently in the US. Olivia now lives in sunny California with her photographer husband and daughter, where she works in marketing and writes.
When she's not writing or thinking about writing, she reads (across all genres), watches old movies, helps her husband with his photography business, or runs around from piano recitals, and gymnastics practice sessions, to birthday parties with her daughter - just to name a few of her adventures.
Her stories are inspired by the rich Romanian folklore, her declared love for both Eastern and Western Europe, everyday happenings (reality always beats fiction), and sometimes... dreams.
