I was born in 1967 and can rather be classified under the heading “modern nomad”. This began with my birth – born as a Swiss in Berlin – and continues in my life until today. I was never longer than 4 years in one place, often only 1-2 years.
But I also like to try out new things; I prefer to deal with historical topics. For my research I read a lot, travel to other countries to learn more, and of course, I use the internet. So it’s never just about telling stories, but novels tell of long-forgotten happenings that I embed in a novel world.
My novel “Die Zifferblattmalerin”, which has also been available in English since June (Glowing Times), is about the history of the Radium Girls in the USA in the 1920s and their merit for today’s ability to sue the employer. The novel also tells about the realities of that time and the problems that women still had.
At the moment I enjoy the digital world, where I can study at universities, whatever I want to do. The last thing I did was to study “International Women’s Health and Human Rights” at Standford University, epidemiology, basic public health science (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and the basics of migration (OTH Regensburg). Now I continue to study Chinese at Beijing University.
I’m free, incorruptible and I write what I think and believe. You read advertising here, but I don’t get paid for it.
The new novel:
“You can’t smell it, you can’t see it, you can’t taste it and that makes everything connected with it unpredictable.” Join me on a journey back to the extraordinary and exciting 1920s in New Jersey and New York. Glowing Times is a gripping novel, related to probably the most significant discovery of the 19th century. The story tells the brave struggle of two friends who move in a society in which independence by women is only tolerated to a limited extent…
