Ever since my childhood I've been interested in almost everything that's in books. I love reading – history as well as art and literature, economics, astronomy, physics, etc. although in most fields I'm restricted to the books with at least some popular appeal because of my ignorance with many procedures of modern science. Eventually I found that explaining human behaviour, i.e. human history, is my calling and that also led me to the history of magic and witchcraft. However, I've been working with several themes, including the history of transport (in Finland), the history of unemployment and public works (after WW II), and so forth. I'd love to write about symbolism and human behaviour but it seems that this theme always escapes my grip.
