Copywriter/Blogger/Creative Writer/Storyteller

Location icon Canada

I was born and raised in Germany. I'm a graduate of Goldsmiths College - University of London/UK, where I studied what I am passionate about - Creative and Life Writing & English Literature.

My goal is to create stories that are deep and meaningful.

In summer 2018, 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 blog.

Oh, my motivation is green tea and Rock.

"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

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.
