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 more than 50 books are available in English:
Boy in a White Room
Science Fiction (age 14+), 2021
Nominated for the German Youth Literature Award 2018
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?
