Writer Biography - Alice N. York, Niall MacRoslin

Alice N. York was born and raised near Munich, Germany. Following her profound hunger for all things technical, she studied industrial and production engineering, and took on the challenge of playing the game.
Before starting her second career as a writer she travelled the world and worked in several sales and marketing positions in technological industries. Now she has remembered her roots and is following her heart. It still tells her: Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Alice currently lives just outside of Munich near the Alps.
Niall MacRoslin was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland. Upon finishing school, he swapped the grey skies of Scotland’s capital to read modern languages at Trinity College, Dublin. Somewhere in the midst of his Irish soujourn, Niall developed a love of all things German and decamped to Lake Constance for a year.
Since his return from Baden Württemberg, Niall has worked as a teacher, book reviewer and proof-reader. He has also successfully completed an MSc in Translation Studies, supporting himself in the meantime by taking jobs as a waiter, barman and – briefly – charity shop manager. All of which he believes stands him in good stead for his new career as fiction writer.

Writer Statement

Based on "Project Black Hungarian", a spy novel by Alice N. York and Niall MacRoslin (ISBN 978-3-942358-43-9). After working in the automotive industry for many years, I participated in the world’s largest electric vehicle rally. Knowing that the switch from ICE to EVs poses a substantial threat to decades of investments made by established car companies, the authors felt that threat was made more tangible by the inclusion of true events, characters based on real people, and information surrounding espionage, EVs, and IT security. Information that has surfaced in the years since publication shows that the truth can be stranger than fiction. Leaving the audience wondering throughout the story: how much is really down to the writers’ imagination.
