Marko Kitti is a Finnish-born author who currently lives in East Sussex, England. He has been writing fiction since 2001 and his Finnish publications include two collections of short stories, two novels for adult readers and one novel for young adult readers.
His second novel Meidän maailma (Our World) was shortlisted for the Runeberg Prize in 2009, a Finnish literature prize named in honour of Finnish national poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg (1804-1877).
In May 2014 Marko released his first children’s book written in the English language. Jesper Jinx is the first of the series of books to feature an eleven-year-old Jesper – a determined action-seeker and probably the unluckiest person in all of Puffington Hill. The second book in the series, Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season, was released in September 2014.
