Agnieszka Stelmoszyk


loves to travel! Whenever she can, she packs her suitcases and, her husband and son at her side, she hits the road. Not to be discouraged by dust on the road, never-ending tunnels through the mountains, uncomfortable beds, and breakfasts sadly lacking spices… it’s most important to get to know new places and people, and admire most beautiful landscapes and architecture.
Agnieszka inspires her protagonists with this passion too. In each of her books you meet ones who either travel all over the world, tinker with things or again and again fall into ever new trouble. And all that because the world is an incredibly curious place, full of surprises and secrets. That’s why Agnieszka so often reminds her readers that they can share in plenty of adventures waiting for us, if we only take a good look around…
