Andres Mann

Before I started writing fiction, I was an Army Officer and a business executive. My education includes degrees in Political Science and International Relations. I am a published author of three management books and various business articles.
I have been fortunate to meet remarkable people from all over the world, most of them good, others not so much. Some were extraordinarily talented, able to perform well in multiple endeavors. My novels are based on the actions of real people I have observed dealing with challenging situations. I believe that it is interesting to understand multi-faceted personalities that are fascinating and evil at the same time, making it difficult to make quick judgments about right and wrong.
Currently, I am following my passion by writing the Tess series of adventure novels. The first two were Tess Awakening and its sequel Tess Valkyrie. Both books are also available in a combined version, Tess – Valkyrie Awakening. The fourth book is Tess: The Abomination of Human Trafficking, a powerful examination of a global problem. The latest is Tess: Day of Reckoning.
