I was raised and educated in Germany. I subsequently lived in France (Provence) for a number of years before moving to Manhattan, where I lived for 10 years. I finally landed here in the Pacific North West. (hence the umbrella on my picture). I plan to stay put, this is as far West as I want to go.
I was a staff reporter for a German travel magazine and researcher for the German Tourist Bureau. I write poetry and have been published in Desperanto Publishers "Secrets" series. I translate light fiction and anything else that comes my way.
What do i like to do? That depends on season, mood and stamina! But I always like to cook! Oh, punctuation is a foreign language to me, I just guess....
