I am a writer from Central Finland, a software designer by day and a dad/husband/dreamer/martial artist by evening.
It all started when I was eight years old. I found out that there were books of Tarzan, my childhood hero. My mother started to read them to me, but censored them - all of you who have read them know why. Annoyed by this, I started to read them on my own. Dreams and legends have followed me from that time, as companions on my voyage through life.
Since then I've always thought of becoming a writer, but somehow it just didn't happen for a long, long time. There was always something more important to do. Finally I understood that it would never happen if I didn't start. So I did.
From the days of Tarzan, exciting adventures and fantasy stories set in the past and the future have been my interest. For me, the natural choice was to start writing science fiction and fantasy. Some years ago I came up with the idea of Fargoer, and you could say that writing about Vierra's adventures has been my love interest since then. To this date, I've written eight short stories of Vierra which form the first Fargoer novel, Winds of the North. Five of them have currently been published as eBooks in English. Some of my other short stories have been published in Finnish genre magazines.
So the dream of becoming a writer, almost 30 years after I first read about Tarzan's adventures, is on its way to become reality. At least they can't say that I didn't try.
