Meet the Author


Alexis Munier (Lausanne, Switzerland) relocated from California to Europe in her mid-twenties and began teaching English at world-renown language schools in Russia, Slovenia, and Italy. After a stint in Zurich where she was a nanny to a Swiss-German family and had a number of Swiss and Austrian boyfriends, she took to dirty German slang like a Berliner takes to beer. Now a writer and opera singer based in Switzerland, Ms. Munier still finds time to visit Vienna regularly, where she never fails sing Wagner and feast on Wienerschnitzel, and a frosty mug of Bier.

Karin Eberhardt (New York, NY) was born and raised in the wine-growing regions of the German Rheinland. While completing work on master's degrees in German and English, she visited New York City and met her future husband on a subway train. Ms. Eberhardt currently spends her days as a teacher specializing in cross-cultural German-American projects and nights educating her American artist husband in the 101 ways of Bavarian sausage-making.
