I am a German writer of thrillers and children's books. Supposedly, I was born in the city of Bielefeld in western Germany in 1960. "Supposedly", because the existence of this place is doubted by some. I grew up in the rural town of Olsberg, which undoubtedly exists and has kindly allowed me to use it as my pen name. I wrote my Ph.D. on artificial intelligence; my computer's still angry about this and sometimes inserts errors in my books on purpose. I have worked as a management consultant, game designer, and founded three start-ups. Unfortunately, this hasn't made me rich so far, so I'm now trying to become as famous a writer as some of my favorite authors, like Stephen King and Robert Harris.
Currently, only one of my books is available in English:
I'm proud to announce that my novel "Boy in a White Room", which has been nominated for the German Youth Literature Award, will be published by Chicken House Books in May 2021.
