Caspar The Riddle


A Polish author Caspar The Riddle finished language studies at Wrocław University which resulted in translations of various works from Greek and Roman Literature. Then, as a kind of exercise and for fun, he started writing original stories, first for the pleasure of creating a story from the beginning, then as a form of relaxation from professional life. After 15 years of this "accidental writing" he published several works under his original pen name, Kacper Zagadka. You can find all his books in Polish as well as English.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
During my last year at Wroclaw University, I suppose. I sat in a cafe once and wrote my first children's book.
Describe your desk
It's white, simple and clean. There's a small green lamp at one side, exactly the same as I used to see in most library's reading rooms, and a MacBook as my "all-in-one" tool. I keep some tall plants by the terrace door nearby. Usually enveloped in the darkness of the night.
