Other activities


One of the largest influences in my life is my interest in space in general and science fiction in particular. Which is also the focus of some, but by no means all, of my writing.


My fascination for space enticed me to learn more about our planet. And maps. There is a reason why Solana is a cartographer. Furthermore, I took courses in climatology, meteorology, oceanography, hydrology and geology.


Eager to become fluent in English, I came to Canada as an exchange student. Now I am bilingual in English and German. Through my studies I learned a lot about languages in general and about the physics behind articulation and speech sounds in particular.
