Biography

Having survived cancer, I am not afraid to explore the darkness. I still find my inspiration in the sea, vinyl music and in beautifully written books. I am currently working undercover in the hospitality industry in order to study Humans so that I can complete my series of The Kaerling. With each day that passes, I am more and more convinced that I’m an alien trapped in a Human body and have no idea where my home world is! I have no plans to write about the hospitality industry itself; my current “lifestyle” is merely a way of researching characters for my books.
