I am a writer and book-author and I live on a small island in the north sea and in a big city in Germany. Most of my published books are novels. None of them is translated into english until now, but two into korean. At the moment I am working at my ninth novel. A cookbook come out 2005. To read and to try recipes is a good way to get away from work. My kids think, that our money is coming out of the wall and that mum is playing computer games all day long. But this is not true. (I worte this two years ago, in the meantime, they grew) I have been collecting cookbooks and recipes for the past 20 years, and I love to cook for my family and friends. I love all seasons but the best season to write is winter. For cooking I prefer the summer.
