Born in Holland during the war, MJ survived his first air attack at 20 days of age. However, being dyslectic, he was not too succesful at school, and at 19 began a career as a marine engineer. As such he sailed mainly in SE Asia, Afrika and Europe, on liners, tankers, and tugs.
At 27 MJ migrated to NZ, where he did further study (BTh), married and had two splendid sons.
MJ now lives in Johnsonville (Wellington) NZ, where he retired, and spends time on writing, and on his hobbies which are really too numerous for his own (finacial) good.
Marcus Johnson so far wrote five books, three of which were children's books bublished under his real name of Hasko Starrenburg
