Ziggy Torok

Biography

Have been born and raised in Hungary. I relocated to the United States in 2007, thru the company I worked at that time. I wrote my first poem about 18 years ago. The early years` poems are in Hungarian. Started to write poems in English really few years after my relocation. Some of my poems have already been published, but this is the first time when I actually put my English poems into a book format.
One of my other hobbies is driving. Have been driven in many countries, in many different driving cultures. During that I have faced many issues on the roads, which ones could be easily avoided and/or managed. That is the inspiration to my "Drive smarter, drive safer" book. I do believe that driving and being on the roads would be much more enjoyable for many, if not for all of us if more and more driver would follow those few simple guidelines which I talk about in my book.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
More of an "inspiration" than a story, but the Southern California traffic. It is just incredible how the traffic can stop from one mile to an other without any reason. Hoping that as more and more people read my book - Drive smarter, drive safer - the roads will become a much safer place to be.
What are you working on next?
That is still up in the air... Maybe the second part of my latest book. But it can happen that I publish my Hungarian poems first.
