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.
Please feel free to contact me.
Currently, only two of my books are available in English:
Boy in a White Room
Science Fiction (age 14+), 2021
A boy wakes to find himself locked in a white room. He has no memories, no idea who he is and no idea how he got there. A computer-generated voice named Alice responds to his questions - through her, he is able to access the internet.
He gradually pieces together his story - an abduction, a critical injury, snippets of his past ... But how can the boy tell what's real and what's not? Who is he really?
