Bio, Bits & Bobs

I was born in an Austrian steel town on what was allegedly the foggiest Thursday witnessed by anyone, ever. After a cinema-ridden adolescence I had planned to study film but wasn’t accepted into film school. Instead, I studied literature and gender studies and spent a lot of time abroad, specifically in Scotland, New Zealand, and Malta. After an entirely avoidable PhD, during which I learned to read and write like a weasel, I luckily went on to study and teach Screenwriting at the University of New Orleans. I then undertook an audacious foray to Los Angeles and eventually returned to less high-strung Austria in 2016.

I’ve since written - somewhat trilingually - for Austrian, German, and American production companies, broadcasters, and streamers and managed to scoop up a few awards and accolades along the way.

I write everything, as long as it’s...

- Quirky, edgy, bone-dry

- Historical, Biographical, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Crime

- Female-driven
