In Patricia Furstenberg’s words:
I was born in Bucharest and was brought up listening to the legends and folktale’s of Romania’s past. This and the books I grew up amongst gave me a love for words.
I have always been drawn to discovering more about the people and the dogs featured in historical events. What stirred them? What was the lay of the land they walked upon, the color of the sky or the scents carried by the wind? It is such stories that I find still resonating today. Discovering these secrets, writing these books, thrills me. Thus, my passion for historical and contemporary fiction books rooted in historical events was born.
I love researching such tales, traveling (researching my next book we visited medieval Sighisoara), exploring hidden corners, and unearthing new facts, forgotten characters, or hidden clues. I love to give them a voice and to bring them into the light through my tales. Be it people, animals, or the land and its architecture, no details are too small, no voice is too soft. What was once overlooked now brings history alive in my historical or contemporary fiction books and short stories, such as the 100-words stories based on the history of Romania.
