TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:

I come from the Czech Republic where I have published 16 novels by with traditional publisher. I write sci-fi and alternate hisotry. Two of my novels have been translated into English and a third is coming out early next year. Apart from writing, I also teach English and creative writing at an university. I live in Prague with my wife and two bunnies.

WHAT INFLUENCED YOU TO WRITE YOUR GENRE(S)?

I think every author writes those genres they themselves would like to read. I loves Star Wars and Star Trek as a kid, then I started reading SF, so I stick to that. I’ve also been always interested in history, especially military history, so I have taken that into my alternate history books.

WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS?

David Weber, Lois McMaster Bujold, Timothy Zahn

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS?

The Honor Harrington series as a whole (the Field of Dishonor, Book 4, is a particular favorite). Apart from other works by authors mentioned above, I really enjoyed for example the Martian and Artemis by Andy Weir.

WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE LITERARY CHARACTERS?

That would again sound repetitive, but Honor Harrington herself, also Nimitz, Horace Harkness and a lots of other characters. Also Miles Vorkosigan and his cousin Ivan Vorpatril from Vorkisigan books. And of course, many more.

IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH POTENTIAL READERS?

Just read whatever you enjoy and stay safe in these interesting times!
