Werner KrotzWerner Krotz was born in Vienna in 1941.
During his studies at university, which he finished with a PhD, he learned to question himself, and the meaning of words.
Since he was a child, writing has always fascinated him.
He lives near Vienna, but he also spent eight years in Switzerland.
When he turned 50 years old in 1991, an old friend of the family presented him with an empty notebook. The accompanying letter read, “May you keep your current creative power, and make notes of all your thoughts!”
That was the beginning of his literary diaries. To this day, they number 28. He's mainly jotted down lyric poetry, but also prose, experiences, and quotes. The contents of the book “Happy in Petrití” are part of Diary No. 28.
