About the author

M.D. Moymirski

Marcin Dominik Moymirski (pseudonym Indy, Moymir)—Polish writer, archaeologist and international relations specialist; author of the AVIV Publishing project; resident in London since 2018 (previously settled in Northern Ireland for nearly 12 years). He studied at the Social College of Entrepreneurship and Management in Lodz (currently the University of Social Sciences), where he earned a bachelor’s degree, and then at the Faculty (formerly the Institute) of Archaeology at the University of Warsaw.

While deepening his theoretical knowledge covering topics such as the ancient Near East and Egypt, the Roman Empire, ancient Greece or pre-Columbian America, he simultaneously participated in excavations at the Marea site in Egypt (approx. 45 kilometers from Alexandria), as well as in the exploration and mapping of caves in the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland. He also gained museum experience. The culmination of this stage of his education was the receipt of a master’s degree. 

He communed with the world of literature from an early age, using a well-stocked home library or preparing for school performances and recitation competitions. This activity gave rise to the dream of acting, which later turned into a passion for writing. Even as a child, the author made timid attempts to put his thoughts on paper and give them the form of a poem. During his teenage years, he developed a number of projects—this is how sketches and preliminary scripts for several comic books and the outline of his first adventure novel were created. Finally, in adulthood, thanks to the experience he had previously gained, he was able to start professionally publishing his own works.
