I have trained as a bookseller and worked and studied as a librarian and information specialist, I have also worked for a screenwriter. Meanwhile, I’ve attended many writing workshops, among them one at the University of Oxford. In the year 2000 I won a short story competition. This was followed by several publications. My German books “Abgeschlossenes” (2001), “Angefangenes” (2005), and “Ausgelassenes” (2012) together form the „Präfix-Trilogie“ (prefix trilogy). I have also translated two English poetry collections by Maxine Backus „Zurich observed“ (2004) and „To learn to pleasure yourself“ (2008). Since 2010 I am working on my first novel in English about an alternative undertaker in Albuquerque.
