Urban Vyaas lives somewhere between Europe, Central America and Asia. For more than ten years he used to get around on a boat, but had to give it up because it was too time-consuming. Right now he gets most of his utilities by magic, just like everyone else who lives on land. If he’s not writing or moving around, he likes to read, entertain his wife and to visit artist colonies who established themselves in old factories or in the middle of nowhere.

He’s also comfortably asocial—a hermit.  Sometimes he tends to be a pessimist if he is not careful and an oil-and-water combination of ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, and drive.
