Trolls are a prickly bunch. Well, more rock-hard, really, but prickly gets to the heart of their mood. They don’t much care for mushbumps. That’s what they call people like you and me. Don't get me wrong. A nice, juicy human appetizer suits them just fine every now and then. They just can’t stomach all the yelling and screaming.

School Visit: The European School

Over the course of three full days, I worked with the primary students at the European School in Mamer, Luxembourg in a series of workshops designed to teach them the building blocks of a good story. I was blown away by their creativity and enthusiasm! One of the classes even welcomed me with their own drawings of the troll in Humonstromous. Thank you to all of the students for sharing your stories, and to the teachers, the parent association, and especially Jung Kim for organizing the visit. Keep writing!
