Petteri's interest towards speculative fiction started at the ripe age of eight, when he found out about Tarzan of Edgar Rice Burroughs and thus entered a lifetime of reading dashing adventures in far away, even impossible locations.
In his teens he started to play tabletop roleplaying games, a hobby that has strongly influenced his writing. He dabbles with both playing and designing games.
His fiction mainly consists of short stories, some of which have been published in Finnish genre magazines. He published his first novel, "Kaukamoinen" in 2013 and translated it as an indie translation project on the same year. Resulting "Fargoer" is his only internationally published novel so far.
Petteri's writing is heavily infuenced by pulp fantasy writers such as Robert E. Howard, as well as Finnish myths and legends of old, but he doesn't shun away from science fiction either.
He continues to write in various projects, which consist of a roleplaying game called "Tales of Entropy" to be published in 2016-2017 and a project "Writing with Games", a venture in combining story-gaming with fiction writing.
Petteri is a software designer by trade. He lives in Jyväskylä, Central Finland with his family and enjoys martial arts when he has time in his super-busy schedule.
