(I'm not requesting too much. I'm just an avid postcard lover)

As a writer and journalist, I was stationed in Moscow, London, Brussels, Paris, New York, San Francisco and Washington DC. I was writing postcard to myself wherever I go as a part of my diary. I traveled around the world, met hundreds people, adventures and romances...

I was backpacker on the 80's chasing after rock festivals & concerts during summer in Europe.
LOVE Metallica, Iron Maiden, Guns n' Roses, Def Leppard, Scorpions, Nightwish, Tears for Fears, The Cure, Depeche Mode, King Crimson, John Wetton, Steven Wilson, Chris Cornell, The Allman Brothers Band and more.

I play bass (Fender Precision) and guitar (Les Paul) but not in any band.
I wrote 18 non-fiction books on the 80's and 90's.
Now I'm writing my second novel.
