Mika Paananen


Mika Paananen lives in Finland Proper with wife, son and a young furry ball loaded with razor blades called 'Ace'. Born 1965 and having been engineering in computer and telecommunications industry as well as in mediawork, author has an extremely dim view of current world, which makes the research and authoring of the past much easier and, what's best, funnier. Besides, nothing beats reading of Sir Walter Scott, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, M.R.James, Roald Dahl and others, in convenient weather and chair in sunny backyard. And why not inside during the thunderstorms.
This author has declared that he refuses to grow up.
