British with Romanian roots, M.A. Ronian, 42, graduated from University before embarking on a successful journalistic career followed by a worthwhile stint in the cruising industry. It was the horrendous experience of undergoing treatment for cancer that made the author aware of just how important it was to get this story down; not only for their own recovery process, but to enlighten the masses on the true story of one of the most dreadful tyrants the world had ever witnessed: Vlad the Impaler.
Other than writing, M.A. Ronian loves nothing better than to travel, read and listen to music. A keen linguist, the author has good knowledge of five languages and is an eager observer of human nature, political change and, above all, history.
