What I am working on
After publishing "City of Lies" in Germany in 2020, I took a break, but now I am back to work the next big project.
My current favourite and the project I fear the most - a pirate story. I've been sitting here for a long time. I know the beginning, the end, my protagonists and their backstory, but again and again, I have the feeling that something that connects all the characters is still missing.
At the moment I'm on fire for this project again, and it could very well be that I've cracked the story by now.
It's my goal to send the manuscript out to my editor by the end of 2021.
I am currently working intensively on this text. I went back to plotting, asked myself what my characters want, who they are, what motivates them, what I even want to say with this story, where the actual conflicts lie.
At the moment I spend much time in the university library, my current "office", writing the 2nd version of this story from scratch.
Update: This project is on hold for now - I think I did too much doctoral work on it.
The Beauty of Blood
I love vampire stories. As a big fan of Anne Rice, they always fascinate me. This is my very personal vampire story that I have to write. I've already written a "complete" outline, but I don't like it yet. With Lisa Cron's " Story Genius " (PL), I would like to go back to the story's beginning. I don't know yet whether I'll do that right after my pirate story "Red Lilly".
Help! My friend is a spy! Book series
I just thought that for a good chance of success on Amazon I would need a book series of at least 3 parts. And the very next day I had a super sexy idea that fits perfectly into three books. Ideas are written down and saved immediately. I'm already looking forward to this project, which could also be a bit more humorous than my other works.
Coffee, Death & Cigarettes
A cop befriends his mysterious neighbour only to find out that she's involved in a serial killer murder case he's working on.
