Nayden Kostov
Nayden Kostov was born in Bulgaria, and he’s lived in places such as Belgium, Germany, and Iraq, before he settled down in Luxembourg with his family.

He has always suffered from an insatiable appetite for facts that stem from an unrestrainable intellectual curiosity. It’s certainly influenced his academic background and his career.

His career has been just as diverse and broad, swinging from that of a military intelligence analyst and army paratrooper, on through to that of a civil servant with the European Commission. Nayden has also worked as a clerk, where he performs purely financial tasks in a major bank. He’s also a MENSA member.

For his trivia book for kids, his eight year old son inspired him to write it, and his son even illustrated it.

In 2020, he won a Readers’ Favorite Silver Medal.

“1123 Hard to Believe Facts” is a non-fiction book that was released in 2016.

It’s intended to be fun for anybody older than 14 years of age, but even the spicy of entries, has been neatly separated into the chapter on “Facts on animal and human sexuality”, and are always factual and stay away from profanity.

To Nayden’s delight, an avid reader of his site explained to him that she’s been preparing daily fact sheets for her son’s lunch box. She prints out three facts every single day in order to create bit of lunchtime fun, which entices him to read more and provoke his intellectual curiosity. It’s something that he wishes his parents had done for him.
