Welcome to my world! This website is but a tiny sampling of who I am and my creative work. You have come to this site for two reasons: either because you googled my name or because you followed a link. Either way, welcome! Stay for a while, feel right at home, look around, buy a book or two. It is, after all, how I make a living.
I’m an author. I write books. I write about things that are important to me. Contemporary, fresh feel-good fiction with unconventional, but always hopeful or happy endings. It’s what I like to read myself. I write because I don’t have a choice. There are so many stories in my head, constantly forming, constantly trying to get out. Feel free to have a look on the other pages to learn more, listen to me narrate from those stories, and – if you like what you see or hear – you can follow the links to buy them on e.g. Amazon. But my books are also available from dozens of other online outlets and well-stocked bookstores.
I’m an author. But I’m also a man in his “best years”, a father, husband, and friend. I’m married to the most amazing man, Alex, a social worker and manager in public service. Together we have a beautiful six-year-old son, Sascha. I consider myself a citizen of the world, having lived on two continents and traveled extensively through another four. Travel is still one of my great passions and an inspiration for my writing. When I’m not writing, I like to do public speaking or training (where I have my professional background) or I help tourists discover my city. Oh, right, I do have a Facebook profile, too, and I can be found on Instagram, where I post mostly pictures of Mother Nature.
I’m an author. But I’m also an activist, be it on behalf of my siblings in the LGBT community around the world who are denied their civil or even human rights. I am a proud member of these professional writers’ organizations:
Thanks for dropping in, enjoy your stay and welcome back!
