Ed Marishta was born and raised in the small town of Gramsh, in Albania. He grew up with a very active imagination, which he would usually put to work creating stories and sharing them with others. As early as 10 years old, Ed tried to write his first piece, a fantasy story about a little boy with psychic powers, which he titled “The Adventures of Ren”. Sadly, that manuscript was lost and he never got to finish it, or any other work until many years later, when he picked up working again on several different projects.
He would say he does not consider himself a writer and will probably never make this his profession, but he loves telling stories.
‘The Endërland Chronicles: Book of Daniel’ is the first finished work he publishes, mostly for his own pleasure and as fulfilment of a promise made. The follow up "Book of Serena" is now also out, and he is currently working on the third and final book in 'The Endërland Chronicles' series, which will be titled "Book of Joshua".
