About Me

I was born in Warsaw, Poland, but have spent most of my life in Munich, Germany, where I attended film school to become a screenwriter.

After my professional education, I worked in the German film industry for several years, mostly as a scriptwriter, but I also produced and directed a few short films which were nominated for and won a couple of awards.

Being a huge fan of videogames since I can remember, I expanded my field of expertise and worked as a game writer in the German video game business for a while before I made my childhood dream come true by getting my first novel published.

I’ve been working as a novelist full-time ever since and there’s nothing I enjoy more than this job.


In 2016 I moved to the US and now live in South Carolina. Always more a fan of tea than coffee, Sothern Sweet Tea is my Ambrosia … but that’s of course only one of the countless things I love about this great country.

When not spending time in the worlds inside my head and writing about them, I enjoy walking my dogs, playing video games on my Xbox, reading, movies, listening to Gothic and Industrial music.

Yes, I’m a geek and proud of it  😉
