Hi, I am Franciska, a Hungarian writer, journalist, and blogger. Welcome to my site. I’ve been writing short stories and news articles since my teenage years. Later on, I started to write a blog. I worked as a journalist for over a decade, but I’ve always wanted to be a full-time writer. 

I founded and edited the first newspaper of my high school when I was only 16 years old. I was also awarded The Student Journalist of The Year prize twice. After graduating from college, I worked as a journalist and online editor for 10 years.

I wrote my first short story as a child and it won me the short story competition of my primary school. Writing short fiction has been part of my life ever since although, with the exception of one or two stories, my work has never been published. One of the exceptions was the short story entitled “First Love” which won the second prize in a competition in 2011.

I live in Lapland with my Finnish husband and my son who was born in Rovaniemi.

I have had different types of jobs in my life. By now I came to the conclusion that it is possible to live without writing. But it is not worth it.

Only when I write I don’t feel like wasting my time while I should do something more important.

Get a Sneak Peek!

 

Can we fall in love with a city? Can we then become so disenchanted with it that we leave it and never come back? 

 

This book shows you how Budapest is through the glasses of an idealistic humanities student, who moved up to the big city a bit naively, but with an open heart and full of good intentions, and who, eventually, ran away from there in bitter disappointment. 

 

The book is not fully translated yet from Hungarian. Based on the feedback I receive I will decide on the final edition of the English translation.
