He lives in Germany, in Usingen, a small city in the Taunus hills.
Research in history and mythologie of the Germanics belong to his passions, in his of his books he's reflecting that.
He's a member of the german "Eldaring", a society, affiliated with the Troth organization, which has as aim to give a variety of help and support to people who're interested in the germanic-heathen religion Asatru.
A second passion of GardenStone is the wide field of magic(k), especially the so called ritual magic. He is a longtime educated mage, which include lots of shamanic aspects, and he teaches it too in several european countries; both to individual students in a one-on-one context and to groups. He doesn't organize that himself, he is just asked as a teacher. He restricts those invitations to just a few in a year.
Wellknown is GardenStone too through his big website, which is much appreciated and highly frequented by people from all over the world.
