George Ander was born in 1989 in Darmstadt (the city of science), central Germany. With a love for exploring different cultures, he soon visited every continent on the planet. While at home, he found another passion in acting for a theater group at the local university and a few short film projects. These experiences brought him closer to creating his own characters and stories. And on a journey to the back-country of Morocco, the strange alien-looking writings of the local Berber people caught his eye. With his mind awash with ideas, a year of intense research in physics, history, and philosophy, followed. Combined with his past experiences, he crafted the world and characters of his award-winning novel, To Those We Found.
