Marc Remus is German painter and author of eight children's books. His novels have received many literary awards and have been translated into ten foreign languages.
Remus was educated in the United States, graduated with a BA in art and illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, and lived in Japan and Central America. He has traveled to seventy countries and visited over a thousand cities. His work has been featured on TV and in many magazines and newspapers in Germany, USA, and Mexico.
During his art studies in California in the 1990s, Remus took his first children’s book illustration class. His college teacher inspired him to start writing and not just illustrating. The result was a picture book called Painting Brian, which led to his first book and eventually to the Magora series. In the early 2000s, Remus studied for four years at the Institute of Children’s Literature. In 2016 the Magora book, which he had initially written more than twenty years before, was finally published. During the five years that followed, eight more books were published, and Remus received many literary awards for his achievements.
Having a sweet tooth since childhood, Remus embarked on a new journey in 2019. Surrounded by many overweight friends and family members, Remus came up with an idea to teach children a healthy way of eating without preaching. This idea resulted in "The Chocolate Clouds." It took the author two years to illustrate the book. With over 150 drawings, it is a rarity in children’s literature.
Today, Marc Remus has finished a new children's book and is currently working with "The Hunger Games" editor Jennifer Rees on the changes.
