“Writing nonfiction is more like sculpture, a matter of shaping the research into the finished thing.”

  • Joan Didion

Desire and dedication, Passion and pain. The best stories are told by life itself. In my non-fiction writing, I find compelling stories in historical events and everyday adventure.

From Palais to Cafe

It proves again: Size does not matter. For you need only 500 metres to become one, maybe even the most important street in Vienna.

Situated between Freyung and Michaelerplatz, nearly bordering the Imperial Palace, the Hofburg, the Viennese Herrengasse was home, work place and leisure time location for nobility, pioneers and discoverers. The founder of the emergency medical service lived here, the first secondary school for girls was opened here and the most prestigious authors met in one of its now famous cafés.

Their anecdotes and achievements are told in Von Palais zu Café. Glanz und Glorie der Wiener Herrrengasse, my first non-fiction book published in 2016 in the Viennese Metroverlag.
