Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written 5 books so far.
I am bi-lingual, I speak English and German. I am mostly an introvert, and a bit socially awkward, but I do enjoy good conversation. I play violin, write, read, and study in my spare time. I also love to travel.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Verloren. Verloren- a beautiful German word meaning lost. Imagine being lost in a fairy- tale world in the enchanting forests of Germany. Anything could happen… and does happen. Will you ever find your way out? Do you even want to? The woods captivate and inspire, haunt and frighten. So, what are you waiting for? Step inside…
1800’s Germany- The Land Of Fairy Tales. Albert and Delilah become lost in the enchanting woods of Germany. They encounter creatures and mysteries that have long existed for hundreds of years. Missing children, creatures that can talk, betrayal, realizations come to light that frighten and captivate the heart- and they must find their way out of the woods.
I was mostly inspired by Germany itself; the culture, the people, the fairy tales from long ago…
