Location icon Canada

I was born and raised in Germany. I'm a graduate from Goldsmiths College - University of London/UK. I studied what I am passionate about - Creative and Life Writing & English Literature. My goal is to always work towards something better and more meaningful.
Currently, I'm living and working in the West Coast of Canada.
Last summer I self-published my novel HEART LIKE A HOLE on Amazon and various other online platforms in North America as well as Europe-wide. I'm determined to dedicate my time entirely to writing one day!

For more info please visit the bio page on my personal blog.

Oh, my motivation is green tea and good music.

"One has many memories which are deeply entombed. It is the process of writing which brings these small bits of memory to the surface. But one isn't aware of it. One doesn't know where they come from. One cannot put them into focus. From time to time one is able to retrace the path and reach the origin……. The writer's works are born from these hidden springs"
- Paul Auster

Drive

Posted on Apr 24, 2017 in Fiction | 0 comments She is a nurse at the hospital in the Northwest and doesn't own a car. I later learned that she can't drive and doesn't have the time to learn, either. Her hours are from four to midnight and often she misses her last bus.

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Fiction | 0 comments " I do not know how much of my writing is true, or which parts (if any) are true. This is a potentially lethal situation. We have fiction mimicking truth, and truth mimicking fiction. We have a dangerous overlap, a dangerous blur.
