"I get inspiration for writing from the world of film, especially the thriller genre. That’s what I practice, in the shape of novels. The epic story with its drive, its unpredictability, the struggle against an unknown superpower, and, not least, the personal sacrifices for the sake of a greater good are at the heart of it all."
