Lars Meyer was born between two seas in the far north of Germany. He studied law, but finds that writing fantastic stories is more exciting than harping on paragraphs. For him, comics are art, films a passion and books food for the soul.

He keeps fit with bodyweight training and running in the woods – the next Kiel run is coming! He writes books for adults and young people, and the best ideas come to him in the garden, where squirrels often visit him and like to eat out of his hand.
