Štěpánka Sekaninová spent her childhood near Kolín, in the Polabí lowlands region of the Czech Republic. Although she is a Bohemian at heart, fate carried her to the heart of Moravia. She is a graduate in Czech and History from the Faculty of Arts of Masaryk University. While still a student, she started work at Czech Television in Brno, where as a reporter she travelled about the South Moravia region and got to know every part of it. She later switched from reporting to the production of light entertainment and children’s programmes for the Brno studio. Štěpánka loves books and has always longed to write, so when her life’s journey presented her with the opportunity to work as a literary editor, she accepted it with alacrity. And so she writes, surrounded by beautiful books, realising a dream she’s had since childhood.
