Born and raised in Germany, English is my second language, which is the reason why I will never understand English commas or Gerunds. I am a working mum with a - currently - twelve year old son. Writing is my hobby; the butter on my toast comes from my job as technical editor. I sing in a choir, I like bike-riding and jogging, I love pasta in all its forms, I can live without music and noisy neighbours but not without animals. Travelling is a joy, and so is that first spark that tells me a new story wants to be written.
