Born and raised in Zurich, Martin Riesen is blessed with an overflowing imagination. Perfect conditions for telling and writing stories. 

In 2014, his first novel of the Steamforged Empires named “Aussergewöhnliche Automatons” was created. Since then everything has been dominated by Steampunk.

Several sequels and the illustrated steampunk storybook “Der Dampfwolf und andere Geschichten” have since followed, and an end is not in sight yet.
