About this author

Grigory (a.k.a Grisha) Ryzhakov grew up in the Russian Far East, bathing in the icy waters of Seas of Okhotsk and Japan and playing hide-and-seek in the snowdrifts that carpeted his native town of Korsakov.

He later travelled thousands of miles to vibrant London, on the way collecting his MSc degree in biochemistry at Moscow State and PhD in molecular biology at Cambridge University.
Meanwhile, Grigory has been ceaselessly creating poems, songs and prose until eventually he wrote his debut novel "Mr Right & Mr Wrong".

"Usher Syndrome" was his first published story, also adapted for the stage and performed at London's Barons Court Theatre in 2010.

K.E. Saxon Hi Grigory! Thanks for the friendship. Your short story sounded so interesting to me, that I just popped over to Amazon and downloaded it. I've only read a few paragraphs, but it totally drew me in from the first word. Interesting premise.
