Federico Appel was born in Rome in 1979.
Since he loves to give himself so many airs we will say that he received a doctorate in Italian Literature at the “La Sapienza” University of Rome, which was an adjunct professor of “Literature for children” in the same University, which published essays on science fiction , adventure, cycling and the fantastic, and who is editor of a small but glorious children’s publishing house.

He illustrated several books with the New Roman Editions, two novels: The Memories of Alexander and Napoleon’s Double. With Sinnos he has published instead two comic novels: Pesi Massimi and La leggenda di Zumbi the immortal, with Fabio Stassi.
