I’m a writer of speculative fiction. I dip toes in several tributaries of the genre, from literary spec to epic fantasy to sci-fi to no spec (rarely, but it happens).

Writing has always been in the background of all my adventures. I started writing in primary school and finished my first novella (I thought it was a novel at the time) at the age of twelve.

A lot has happened since. Moving countries (eight times), getting married, completing my Ph.D. (in molecular biology), and having my three kids (they’re a lovely handful) were the biggest plot twists.

I now live in the beautiful Black Forest region of southern Germany, where dark, mossy gorges and a breath-taking view of the Swiss Alps provide plenty of inspiration.

I’m an associate member of SFWA and a Codexian.
