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 everything I did. I started writing in primary school and finished my first novella (I thought it a novel at the time) at the age of twelve.
A lot happened since. The biggest plot twists were moving country eight times, getting married, completing a Ph.D. in molecular biology, and having three kids.
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, a Codexian, and had recently had my first go at being a panelist.
