Basically, I’m a politically incorrect writer. There are no taboos for me. So, if you decide to enter my world, you should know that when you leave it, you will either love me or loathe me. I'll guarantee you one thing, though. My work will never leave you indifferent.

I find the most comfortable in darker atmospheres. I write mainly crime fiction and thrillers and read both genres, plus spy novels, as well as literary and historical fiction. I take care of my body and mind, and I’m careful not to neglect family relationships and still have time for pleasure. I’m a father of two wonderful kids: Kuba and Lenka. My motto is 'the golden mean', which I try to apply both in my life and in my work. I travel a lot, go to the gym regularly and sometimes roll around on a mat. When asked what I did before I became a writer, it’s better to ask what I didn't do. I have built skyscrapers in New York, cooked in Spanish resorts, worked behind the bar in Ireland, England, Spain and the USA, worked on oil rigs in Norway, worked at refineries, been a spokesperson for a Euroleague basketball club and worked as a sports and investigative journalist. And that's not even everything ...

I am a twin, so you could say I have two faces. There might be something to it, but I treat it as an advantage that helps me to create interesting and original characters. I consider myself a good person, but I don't pretend to be perfect. We all have our dark side, after all, we are only human. That is why I never measure others by my own yardstick and, in my relationships with people, I always try to see the world through their eyes. I am honest and I demand the same of others. I can't stand stupidity, ignorance or fundamentalism of any kind. I simply don't talk to outright idiots. I never say 'never' and start from a simple premise - I treat people the way they treat me.

If that doesn't put you off, then I encourage you to read my novels. They are mainly entertaining, although I try to smuggle something more into each one. My stories are usually dark, and sometimes scary, but they can also occasionally make you cry. I rely mainly on emotion, which, in my opinion, is the basis of crime literature. If, after reading my book, you check the locks on your doors, close the blinds, cry, get emotional or just sit down and think for a while about the story I wrote, I will be very, very satisfied. Please let me know if that happens. If I'm not engrossed in writing, I'll be happy to talk to you.

Best regards,
Przemyslaw Piotrowski

Writing books is a way of life for me. It's a great adventure, a passion and a commitment. It is a world I cannot imagine myself not being in. 

I love travelling to interesting places around the world. Everywhere I go, I draw inspiration for future stories.
