Readers > M. Mehmet Unver
I was born in Batman, Turkey, to deeply religious parents. From the age of 5, I attended parochial school in preparation for a life as an Islamic priest, but I soon discovered that I wasn't cut out for the life my parents had prepared me for.
After flitting around from various small jobs, including working in a shoe factory, I finally settled down to writing.
Since 1993, I have been living in Reutlingen, Germany, with my wife and four children. I continue to be enchanted with the ancient mystery of my homeland, a place settled at the beginning of recorded human history.
In my spare time, I enjoy writing poetry and reading anything I can get my hands on in German and Turkish. I am also currently working on a computer program called "TAM," which is being developed to teach young people and adults how to use the computer.
