Having grown up in a musical household, Fred started out in classical piano. Throughout his teens, he discovered his love for writing music, and eventually studied at the Norwegian Academy of Music under the tutelage of Professor Bjørn Kruse and Associate Professor Mats Claesson. He graduated with a BA in Music Composition in 2013, released the album ‘Castle on the Lake’ in 2017, and started dabbling in game development which eventually lead him to decide to write his first novel.


He is now stationed in London, UK where he works with his amazingly talented sister Mei Stoyva on games.


Also, shoutout to my mum and dad who are both
