I’m a writer of speculative fiction. I dip toes in several niches of the spectrum, 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 wrote my first story in second grade and finished my first book at the age of twelve.

A lot has happened since. Moving countries (eight times), getting married (to a very supportive man), completing my Ph.D. (in molecular biology), and having my three fascinating kids were the biggest plot twists.

I’m now settled in the beautiful Black Forest region of southern Germany, where dark, mossy gorges and a fantastic view of the Swiss Alps provide plenty of inspiration.

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