Grigory Ryzhakov

For fans of:Jasper Fforde, Terry Pratchett, Isaac Azimov

Grigory (a.k.a Grisha) Ryzhakov grew up in the Siberian Far East, bathing in the icy waters of Seas of Okhotsk and Japan and playing hide-and-seek in the snowdrifts that carpeted his native town of Korsakov. He later travelled thousands of miles to vibrant London, on the way collecting his MSc degree in biochemistry at Moscow State and PhD in molecular biology at Cambridge University. Meanwhile, Grigory has been ceaselessly creating poems, songs and prose until eventually he wrote his debut novel "Mr Right & Mr Wrong". His new sci-fi techno-thriller "Made in Bionia" is out 14.04.14. "Usher Syndrome" was his first published story, also adapted for the stage and performed at London's Barons Court Theatre in 2010. Grigory also composes music and his songs are available on SoundCloud -
