I was born 1966 in Pori and lived a few years there before moving to Helsinki. Even after moving we spent half of the summer holidays in Pori, where our grandparents still lived. The second half we spent in Teuva.

I learned to read when I was 4 years old and started my first book - a detective story as a 12 -years old kid. It was never finished but from those days I remember receiving a note from my finnish teacher in the end of one essay: ”So weird I cannot even review this.”

My road to fantasy started at the beginning of 1980’s when I read Margaret Weis’ and  Tracy Hickman’s Dragonlance chronicles. Since then I’ve been a real freak for fantasy and horror and I’ve spent thousands of hours planning RPG scenarios, worlds and stories.

Currently I write mainly fantasy and some day hopefully horror, too. I am working all the time, even when I sleep and from dreams I sometimes get the craziest ideas. I love to dream about the end of the world and about zombies.
