Author’s Bio

I am a writer and screenwriter. I was born in Hungary and from 1997-2001 I studied library and informatics, which included political science and philosophy as well. I graduated with an MA degree. As a writer, I’d love to transform the ideas, notions and emotions that come to me into words the best way I can. I have been writing novels and poems in several languages (Hungarian, English, French, German) since childhood. I compose essays, historical novels, tales and poems. I also have some experience in graphic and design.

As a communicative person, it always fascinated me that by learning other languages one can take a glimpse into other cultures. As though a lingo would magically open a door to other people, and other ways of perceiving this amazing world we are living in. I speak English fairly well, I have been learning German for ten years, Japanese for six years, French for four years and Russian for eight years. I can do with a little Latin and Greek as well. Adding to these, I picked up a little of Arabic and Hebrew.

In October 2012, I went through a liver transplantation and inspired by the feelings and events of that time I wrote a biographic book titled ‘Valaki meghalt, és én élhetek’ (Somebody died and so I can live), it came out in October 2104. It’s in Hungarian, but some parts of it were translated to English and added to the Recovering Memories, so as to explain the situation and the illness.
