Magdalena Niedzwiedzka graduated from Warsaw University with a degree in Polish philology, and later went on to study at universities in Manchester and London. For the last twenty years, she has been working at one of Poland's technical universities and writing, mostly historical and biographical novels.
In her free time, she practices oil painting, and fruitlessly struggles to master the piano.
Magdalena's philosophy on life is, "your thoughts become your fate." She has no complaints about her fate.
