Hi! I'm Oliver Markus Malloy.

I'm a German-American novelist and comic artist. Born and raised in Aachen, Germany, I currently live in beautiful Los Angeles, California. Hands down the best state in America!

I began my writing career in the early 1990s, as editor-in-chief of a computer magazine with a monthly circulation of over 500,000, which was distributed by Germany's largest publishing house.

After moving to New York, I was the art director for a newspaper in Manhattan, and later the production manager for a newspaper in Brooklyn, before I began self-publishing my cartoons online in May 2000. I've never had another 9-5 job since.

I turned the story of my life into a bestselling trilogy, Bad Choices Make Good Stories, which has been downloaded over 100,000 times on Amazon, Apple Books, Google Books, Nook, and Kobo.
