Living between London, Vienna and Monaco, Frank Polednik Jr. has from his earliest years moved with ease between different cultures. Born in Washington D.C., where he had his early schooling, he took a first degree in art history at University College, London. Staying on to complete his master’s in 2017, he then returned to a successful career as an author. His first book, Owls Unlimited, was published when he was only fifteen, and, reflecting his international outlook, has been translated into seven different languages. He has now completed a sequel, Owls, which he is currently in the process of turning into an animated feature film.
