Bio, Bits & Bobs
I was born in an Austrian steel town on what was allegedly the foggiest Thursday of the year. 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 and TV broadcasters and managed to scoop up a few awards and accolades along the way.
I write every genre, as long as it’s...
- Quirky, edgy, brazen
- Historical, sci-fi/fantasy, mystery
- Adaptations (literary or other)
- Dark humor
