Marc Remus is an award-winning German Neo Pop-Art painter with exhibitions world-wide. He was educated in the United States, graduated with a BA in art and illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, and lived in Japan and Central America for some years. He has travelled to more than sixty countries and visited over a thousand cities, of which he has painted over two hundred. His work has been featured on TV and in many magazines and newspapers in Germany, USA, and Mexico.
During his studies in California Remus took his first children’s book illustration class. His teacher inspired him to start writing and not just illustrating. The result was a middle grade series, Magora, which won numerous children’s books awards including Readers’ Favorite Book Award, Moonbeam Children’s Book Award and the IPPY (Independent Publisher Book Award).
Remus has travelled many times to Ireland and Scotland and developed a passion for these countries over the years. While he stayed with his family in Arizona, he began writing his first young adult novel. The Language Thieves interweaves the writer’s fantasies with his experiences in Ireland, Scotland and Arizona, making the book a unique multicultural blend.
Remus has studied many languages over the years, among them is English, Spanish, German, Japanese, French, Chinese, Garifuna, Greek and Quiche. He continues to travel, write children’s books and exhibits his artwork in galleries.
