Marios Karakatsanis (Mario KarMa) is a contemporary Greek author. He was born on March 29, 1978 in Piraeus. Curiosity-driven from an early age, he was always fascinated by the strange, inexplicable, and metaphysical element; he liked watching horror movies, do jugglery tricks, and write poems.
At the age of 13, he began to write his first work: a poetry collection where he described–always in his own personal way–his thoughts, worries, distress, as well as his personal experiences, both pleasant and unpleasant. Growing up, he never stopped writing, managing to significantly limit his dyslexia, even use it to his advantage by committing to paper all the images he had in his mind, no matter how difficult it was.
At the Panhellenic contest “Larry Niven Fantastic Literature Awards,” he received the third (3rd) position for writing a novel. At another Panhellenic contest, the “Silver Page 2015,” he received the first (1st) position with praise at the short-story category. At the first UNESCO Art Symposium in Greece, entitled “Made by Artist 4,” which included the awarding of four artists representing the arts of painting, sculpture, photography, and literature, he was awarded as the representative of literature (2017).
He is a member of the Panhellenic Union of Writers.
