About the Author

I was born in Germany in 1956 and grew up in the beautiful Rhine Valley. I studied languages at Bonn University, Versailles and Edinburgh and qualified as a languages teacher in 1985. When my application to work in California was delayed I went to England to bridge the gap. I met my husband at the school where I worked and as a result I have been married for 25 years now and have two wonderful children. I am now working as a freelance translator and writer, and hope that OUT OF THE DARKNESS will be a success.
