I write romance novels for young and new adult readers as well as youth fiction in my native German language.

One of my youth novels was recently awarded both the Österreichischer Kinder- und Jugendbuchpreis (Austrian State Award for Children's and Young Adult Literature) as well as the Kinder- und Jugendbuchpreis der Stadt Wien (Children's and Young Adult Literature Award of the City of Vienna).
