About the Writer
I'm a native German, but my great grandfather and one
of my aunts were British. Therefore I have been bilingual most
of my life.
I chose the engineering path as part of my education,
and specialized in electronics and aviation. Working for
airlines exposed me more to American English. So I spent a
small fortune on perfecting it at Berlitz, and it was my
prevailing language from then on.
Aviation let me go around the globe for years. I
spent a lot of my time in Far East, and some of it in the
Middle East. My passports, showing all these entry stamps,
looked like an impressionistic painting. I became familiar
with Malaysia and Singapore, Thailand, Sri Lanka, China, and
Australia. Not to mention Africa and Israel.
Last but not least, I finally moved to the U.S.,
where I worked as an avionics instructor for an airline.
Teaching avionics systems in a classroom, as well as writing
or editing technical training manuals defined my daily
routine. It was the turning point, transforming me completely
into an editor and writer for the rest of my life.
Then, family issues required my presence in Germany
again. My wife and I returned to my old stomping ground,
leaving 'Corporate America' behind us after so many years. We
stayed in Germany for a while, sorted things out, and then
moved on again.
That's when I originally started an editorial
freelance entity, customized to help individuals or other
small businesses. Later on I decided to follow my desire to
write my own fiction instead, and will eventually publish
under my own name.
We lived in Malta [Mediterranean] for some years
before we decided to move one more time, heading for Spain.
The cooler climate in northern Spain near the Atlantic coast,
and the region of Asturias suits our needs better. Here is our
final home now. It's time for us to grow roots.
