 The quick-and-dirty:
 I’m a cool girl with a passion for writing. 
 The genres you’ll find me hanging out at are contemporary and  paranormal YA, but I’m also snooping into some adult  paranormal right now. All of them romances…of course.
 The nitty-gritty:
 I’m an Austrian lass—totally uncomplicated and up to anything  fun. 
 I grew up in Vienna, not by free will but because my parents  decided to move there when I was only 4 years old. I. Hated.  The. City. Everything about it. So right after graduation I moved back to Upper Austria, where I settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop. 
I’ve been a storyteller all my life. Already in kindergarten, I came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. My teacher would call me a liar. I call it the cornerstone of my writing career.
People always told me you can’t make a living with being an author. So when my first novella PLAY WITH ME came out and shot straight to the stars within the first week, I was totally dumbstruck. Took me a while to realize what was happening, LOL.
And the personal stuff:
At the (awesome) age of seventeen, I met the love of my life. But he was a playboy, and I was so not going to be his next trophy. It took him another four years of fighting for me until I finally decided to give that “couple-thing” with him a shot. I’m now married to this man. ;-)

We have an eleven-year-old son, and together we travel a lot…although I sometimes wish the trips were shorter because I can’t wait to get back to my laptop and my many stories. Unless we’re in Disneyland. No stress to go home then…
