About Steffen Schmidt

Then it reached him: an abstract presence, a feeling from outside his own soul. The force eyed his heart, inspecting it thoroughly. He tore down his walls, opened up and let the feeling enter him slowly, so it could explore the young man’s inner territory. Soon, it would be comfortable and settle down. He made friends with it and hospitably served an even brighter smile.
     In this moment appeared myriads of the small, colourfully sheening wisps among the trees and swiftly spread through the air. The fairies came crawling out of blossoms and boles, they dared show up from under leaves and behind stones. Soon, the grove was filled with a magic shimmer of indescribable colour.
     Enchanted and speechless, he looked at his companion, who wore a similarly bright smile. “You’re sensing it, too,” she said gently. “I can see it in your eyes.”
     “What is it?” he asked with a slightly quivering voice.
     “Love,” she breathed. Then she bent forward and kissed him softly on the cheek. “The Earth element is very strong here,” she explained, her smile unwithered. “It doesn’t affect me quite the same way as it does you, obviously.”


Isn’t it kind of sad that this type of magic doesn’t exist IRL? Don’t you also think good people should be capable of doing magic to do more good? Surely, we’d overcome the difficulties this would mean for our society, right?

I say, fret not! For I believe our world is full of charming magic. Only not of the kind that you can see with the eye, or touch with the hand. But if you open your hearts, you can feel it. You will recognize that there is an abundance of beauty to ‘wield’ and magic to cast. And better yet: everyone can learn it!

One common type of wand that enables this magic is the pen. I strongly believe that stories have the power to enchant us. You could say they are long, complex spells. And luckily, most of us can read them nowadays. If not, then I’m happy to read them aloud for you.

So yey, I’m a wizard! And like most fiction writers, I'm able to cast Light and Dark magic. Those are spiritual elements – forces that work opposing each other, as well as hand in hand. So I invite you to read my stories and experience for yourself what I mean by that.


Now, I advocate free arts, as this way the best content is created. I believe in Universal Loving Friendliness – it's actually the first lesson in wizardry. And let me just say I’m not fond of the concept of money. So this is why I give away my stories for free.

Nonetheless, I plan to do big things like travelling in a few years for an uncertain amount of time. And although part of this journey will be getting along with as little money as possible, I do acknowledge that a bit of money should make things easier, if only to give me a small headstart.

So, I’d really appreciate it if you supported me as a patron. I will only bill every third upload or so. I’d love to offer optional donations, but currently Patreon doesn’t allow for that. Even this little money, however, is of great help. Thank you so much for your support!


May the stars watch over you!
