About meI teach English Lit at Mainz University, Germany, and since 2005 I'm also a published author. I write historical romances, most of them set in early 19th-century Britain.

About my libraryIt's ... uhm ... big. Really, really big. And I love it. :)

My research library consists of two parts: one contains the research I need for my university job, the other contains all my creative writing-related research books ("Research"), with a heavy focus on the British Isles and the Regency period.

Fictionwise, I love reading romance, fantasy and cosy mysteries. Of course, I also own loads of the so-called "classics".

GroupsFolio Society devotees, Romance - from historical to contemporary

Favorite authorsJane Austen, Dorothy Dunnett, Terry Pratchett, Rosemary Sutcliff (Shared favorites)

Thanks for your kind words here and on Goodreads. Please keep me in mind for ARCs on any new books you have in the works! I also review on

Hi Sandy, I just read you blog entry on the Mainz carneval. Are you a carneval enthusiast? I would have guess "no", but perhaps I was just judging by myself :-)
Merry Christmas, Sandy!
Hi Sandy - I really enjoyed The Lily Brand... I'll go bump up my copy of Castle of the Wolf on my TBR pile. Thanks for the invite!
Go to bed! :)
You're too fast for me! :) At any rate, I just added your LT Author button - let me know if you have any questions.

Hi. Your website is very nice and I just ordered Castle of the Wolf (to get an impression). You are one of the few authors I ever had contact with :-) (I once chatted with Brian Moriarty of Infocom adventure games and I once emailed Diane Duane and once I exchanged a few netnews postings with Terry Pratchett).
So English is not your native tongue, is it? It is impressive that you decided to write in that language then - although I can very well understand the decision - I think a lot of things can be better expressed in English than in German - so if I ever wrote I would try English, as well (but I guess I will not :-)
Kind regards Christian
