Bori Praper was born in 1976 in Slovenia. Graduated in English language and literature from the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2000.
Worked as a translator of technical, literary and scientific texts – mostly in the field of EU legislation, contemporary history and audiovisual industry – for more than twenty years.
Also a musician (composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and lyricist). Written and recorded music for numerous audiovisual projects and public events, including dozens of full-length theatre performances. Produced many works by other authors as well as recorded for them, most notably contributing drums as a session drummer. Work published on more than 40 digital releases, 15 audio CDs, and two video DVDs.
Finally, a writer who managed to finish his first novel in English at the tender age of 36, after a few failed literary experiments over the years.
Following a six-year stay in Izola on the Slovenian coast and then a five-year sojourn in Berlin, Germany, in 2017 Borut migrated to warmer climates yet again. He currently lives in the Canary Islands with his wife Monika and a flurry of free-range geckoes, focusing predominantly on translating, writing, horticulture, and tinkering with Cynicism Management, his progressive / alternative rock band; Ray Kosmick, his psychedelic rock / indietronica / soundtracks alter ego; and a few other side projects.
