Professional writer & ghostwriter - Storytelling, fiction, non-fiction

I am a creative and versatile freelance writer and editor. I produce engaging content for the web, print, and marketing needs of my clients. My expertise ranges from creative writing, literature and productivity to marketing, travel, technology as well as software and apps.

I help other writers of fiction with the development of plot and characters to shape their manuscripts into compelling stories. I assist non-fiction authors with structuring their information and content into a flowing and cohesive narrative. I write creative fiction in English and German, and I ghostwrite complete books in the genres literary fiction and romance. I have published fiction, travel guidebooks as well as illustrated books for children.
