“I am a professional freelance author with 11 books in print, mostly plays, two crime fiction and one love novel; half a dozen plays yet to be published. I am holding a PhD degree in Economics, but I got my real diploma from Master William Shakespeare, my greatest inspiration and my best teacher in Literature.
I don’t believe in any religion nor any ideology or political thought. I believe in existence, pure love and a friendly God and of course strongly believe in Almighty Science!
I create maxims and quotes in my works. I like quotes such as: “Veritas Vos Liberabit,” The Truth shall make you free; and “Omne Possibile,” Everything is possible!
I have more than one thousand quotations of my own. I have been creating quotations since my high school years. Some of my collected quotes are from my published books and some are written independently from my books. I would like to have a vast collection of maxims, just like Master François de La Rochefoucauld’s The Maximes. “A Book of 10 000 Quotations” is my life-long project. At the moment I am working on this project eagerly and create many quotes both in Turkish and in English.
I use my middle name, Murat. I have lots of dreams. One of them is to go to Machu Picchu, the ancient Inca city in Peru. My favourite animal is elephant. My astrological sign is Taurus.”
