Ach was, Menschen!

Because homo sapiens has forgotten how to engage with the facets of love, he needs drastic turning points in life. When longing blows up, we are not prepared for its enormous power. It storms the coronary arteries, clouds the brain, takes away our breath.

Heike Winter describes the rollercoaster rides of life in an essentially simple way. Her precise powers of observation, her distinct feeling for language and the effectively worked-out final punch lines make the reader think, cry and laugh.

With childlike devotion to the unkonwn, her protagonists tear wide open the doors of hearts and give birth to homo amans, the loving human.



Kreuzfahrt, Mord und Mittelmeer

The common theme of this collection of literary works is a cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea. I was invited to take part in this anthology and chose Valencia from the list of all dream destinations for my crime novel. »Golden Wedding« tells the story of Erika and Herbert Krause, a lonely togetherness and the helpless attempt to regain a life of which one has not the slightest idea how it works.

Compiled by Brigitte Lamberts and Ursula Schmidt-Speer in the Edition Caput 4 by Adakia Verlag "Kreuzfahrt, Mord und Mittelmeer" contains criminal short stories written by 17 authors.

Available beginning of October 2020 at Adakia publishing house and all bar assortments

Dürer und die Fratze des Teufels

I was invited to submit a contribution for this anthology and chose the red smith Peter Vischer, the elder, as my personality. My contribution "Der junge Schmied vom Heroldsberg" describes a crime at the end of which a guilty person is quickly found without a comprehensive investigation, as was so often the case at these times.  But is the convicted person really the murderer?
