Marc Elsberg was born in Vienna in 1967. He is a former strategy consultant and creative director in advertising, both in Vienna and Hamburg, as well as columnist for the Austrian daily Der Standard. He currently lives and works in Vienna. With his internationally bestselling novels BLACKOUT, ZERO, and HELIX, he conquered the throne of science thriller writing. GREED is a nail-biting thriller as well as an indictment of incessant global trade competition. THE PRESIDENT’S FALL is an unputdownable political thriller. Marc Elsberg has also made his mark as a panel discussion partner for political and economic players.
Two of Marc Elsberg’s bestselling novels are being aired on German television: W&B Television, Joyn, and Sat.1 have produced BLACKOUT, as a six-episode thriller series, with a star cast including, inter alia, Moritz Bleibtreu, Heiner Lauterbach, and Jessica Schwarz. Also in late 2021, ARD will broadcast ZERO – with Heike Makatsch as Cynthia Bonsant.
