Tomaso Merlo

I was born in Italy on June 1973. After my Master in Business Administration, I worked for thirteen years in international relief and development. I worked in East Europe, Africa, Middle East and Central Asia countries as project manager and head of mission work for both NGOs and UN agencies. Since 2008 I have written 13 books, the first two books were reports on my missions while in 2011 I started writing Pulp Novel. Pulp is a style that doesn’t care about manners; it is direct and spontaneous. It is life in its rawness and truth. Pulp likes smiling and keeps its feet on planet Earth.
