My name is Damir Omeragic and I write under the alias Dado Staks.
I am Bosnian, born in Sarajevo in 1971. I have been working as translator/conference interpreter for ages, and, knock on wood, will continue to do so. I also worked stints as a fixer for television companies in wartime Bosnia.
I have thus far published three books in the Bosnian language. The first was a collection of short stories set in Sarajevo during the 1990s siege, which I lived through.
The other two are part of a trilogy about a band of neo-anarchists fighting globalism and government corruption in modern-day Sarajevo.
I have just finished my first manuscript in English, a novel called Now Hiring Killers.
Happily married, the score thus far is: children 0, poodle 1.

"One morning at the barracks, as I was mounting my bicycle to go to the brigade headquarters to take some memos, I suddenly felt my head getting heavy and numbness all over me, and I could see myself falling off the top of a skyscraper."
