Andrea Hofman is a storyteller, astrologer, and researcher of folklore. From a very young age, she was intrigued by the magical world of fairytales. In her favorite childhood tale, the heroine asks the Sun, Moon, and stars for advice—and funnily enough, that is exactly what Andrea ended up doing when she grew up!
Andrea studied astrology and became fascinated with the stories that had been written by life itself. At one point in her studies, she compared fairy tales to real-life biographies and found that they shared the same rhythm. Fascinated, she began to conduct more research and wrote down her observations, not even dreaming that she was about to find the key to an ancient cosmic wisdom that described the biography of the soul - a person's true heroic journey through life. Her discoveries can be found in her book "The True Hero's Journey in Fairy Tales and Stone Circles – Match the Hero’s Journey to your Age".
Andrea lives with her family, dog, and cat in the German part of Switzerland, near Fribourg. She writes, teaches, and works as a storyteller to make the world of fairy tales available to both children and adults. She frequently travels to Sweden to collaborate with the Land of Legends, the United Kingdom, and all other destinations, where remnants of the prehistoric ancestral wisdom can be found.
