Born in Transylvania in a Romanian — Hungarian — German family, I made my literary debut with a collection of short stories and my first novel, The Massacre, sold over 100,000 copies. My writing spans both fiction and non-fiction, primarily economics, history, and international affairs.

After graduating the Romanian Academy of Economics, I embarked on a professional career as a journalist, first running a daily newspaper and then a television station. I've also written several works of non-fiction, including Rumors That Changed the World: A History of Violence and Discrimination (Rowman and Littlefield, US, 2014) and Gods, Weapons & Money: The Puzzle of Power (Nortia Press, US, 2014). I currently hold three PhDs, in Communication, Economics, and History. Starting 2015, I dedicated myself solely to writing.

My first novel in English, The Book of Mirrors (Atria - Century, 2017 / 2018) is an international bestseller and has been translated into over 39 languages. The film adapatation, Sleeping Dogs, is currently in development with Nickel City Pictures while my second novel Bad Blood has been published in over a dozen countries.
