About me

I was born in 1971. After I graduated in 1991, I worked as a broker at the German stock exchange for a number of years. At some point I realized, it was time for a change, and so i started building up my own business. That was the best decision in my life.

Today I am married and i have a wonderful daughter. May wife Marion and me, we live a full life in Munich, Germany and Fort Myers, USA. My playful Labrador Marley keeps me going and makes sure that I leave my writing desk twice a day.

Books kept me fascinated since I was a small child. Writing came much later. I started writing my debut „BLOW OUT“ at the age of 35. „BLOW OUT“ then was published September 2013. „THE WALL“ was published October 2014. It’s a mystery ebook-series of the „Fat Poets Society“ – an association of German bestseller authors and promising newcomers.

My thriller „STORM“ has been published by Heyne Verlag 2018, hit German SPIEGEL-Besteller-List Top14, was elected one of „Ten novels worth reading in 2018“ by the editorial staff of ZDF heute (news program of a German public service broadcaster) and it was nominated “Best German novel 2019” by German Fantasy Society.

My thriller “LIFE” was published April 2020 also by Heyne Verlag. Only a few days after its release, the audio book of “LIFE”, which is magnificently read by german actor Achim Buch, made it number 1 in the Amazon charts in the category “New releases techno thriller”.

My current novel “DROUGHT” (Heyne) was published in September 2021. The climate fiction thriller is set in the near future and shows the devastating consequences of climate change for us humans in Germany and Europe. In addition, it deals with the growing insanity of comprehensive state surveillance and control. Meanwhile “DROUGHT” is already in its second edition.
In March 2022 a short story of mine will be published in the climate fiction anthology “Einmal kurz die Welt retten” (Gmeiner Verlag). 24 dramatic, sarcastic, whimsical and profound short stories by top German-language authors address the most pressing issues of our time and provide food for thought. My story is titled “Nach der Flut” (After the Flood).
Currently I am writing my fifth novel, which is expected to be published again by Heyne Verlag in fall/winter of 2023. Thematically I remain true to myself; it is once again a thriller that combines elements of science and climate fiction, coupled with proper action and suspense 🙂
