I was born in Germany in 1968. My three younger brothers and I grew up in the middle of a forest in the heart of the Luneburgian Heather. After romping through the forest with imagination as my guide, tomboy me learned to read and disappeared into magical adventures, past times or eerie fairytale woods.

I didn't stop at reading. During her training as a landscape gardener, I wrote my first novel. For a while, reality interfered with my writing but after finishing a degree in forestry and a PhD in Science, I returned to my vocation. I love to write Fantasy, Science Fiction and Historical Novels for all age groups.

At present, I'm writing at my next project in a small house near Hildesheim, Germany, where I'm living with my husband, three children and a dog.
