Storyteller from a Foreign Land
I’m a Romanian American author living in Seattle, Washington, a UNESCO-designated City of Literature. I studied computer science in Bucharest, Romania, and moved to the United States to work in software development before shifting careers to professional writing. I now write thrillers, speculative fiction, or both.
I have a master of fine arts in creative writing from Goddard College, and my work has been published in many fiction and nonfiction magazines. For a complete list, see Published Stories. I’m a member of SFWA (Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association), ITW (International Thriller Writers, Inc.), the Authors Guild, and Codex Writers’ Group.
My debut thriller was published by Ooligan Press (Portland State University) on February 7, 2023, exactly twenty-two years since the day I arrived in the US as an immigrant. Signed copies can be purchased from Madison Books, 2022 finalist for Publishers Weekly’s Bookstore of the Year Award. For more, including the first chapter, see Extreme Vetting: A Thriller.
