Von Mozar was raised on the Yardie gang-infested streets of Brixton, London.
In the 1990's he was engulfed in acts of violence and death that debased and destroyed the minds of many who shared the same environment.
He escaped his destructive lifestyle by forcing himself to read, which in turn inspired him to write stories that people from his underprivileged background could engage with and relate to.
For two years, he self-studied creative writing. Then he went on to earn a Diploma in Literature and Creative Writing from The Open University.
Mozar began his writing career in 2002 and in 2004 completed his first novel, Ignorance Kills... He then followed up Sexfiend, Little Jamaica, and Mr. Bling.
Mozar sold over 10,000 paperback books independently in London until he temporarily paused the marketing and sales of his book to pursue a degree in Creative Writing at Kingston University. During his time there, he tutored a vulnerable inner-city youth to write and publish a creative memoir of gang life, Through My Eyes: The Spirit of a Prince.
Mozar graduated in July 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Creative Writing and a 1st Class Special Study in Narrative Techniques in Popular Fiction.
Since leaving university, Mozar has explored a different writing genre, Romantic Realism, which selectively recreates reality as it should or could be. This has led Mozar to develop a crime-thriller series, which is planned for publication in 2018.
