Storyteller from a Foreign Land
I’m an award-winning Romanian American author, and I live 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. Paperback copies, ebooks, and audiobooks are available at bookstores everywhere and can be requested from local libraries. For more, including the first chapter, see Extreme Vetting: A Thriller.
