Ani Corné was born 1960, in Germany. She is a poet, a writer and independent journalist writing in German as well as in English.
The widely travelled writer grew up up in an international environment spending several years in the US, the UK and the past twelve in Italy before returning to her country of birth in 2013, where she now resides in the countryside of Southern Germany. She speaks four languages (German, English, French, Italian).
During her residency in Italy, she became the founder (2002) and editor-in-chief (until 2005) of "Online Writers Against War", an international internet portal where journalists and authors from all over the world had come together to protest the illegal invasion of Iraq by the United States. During this time, she also worked as a freelance journalist and was a guest author (2004 - 2006) for the English language political magazine "Underground Focus" in London. As an independent journalist, she has been commenting international politics for 25 years.
She is also a committed environmental activist and human rights defender. Only recently, she launched her newest humanitarian project, "Interviewed by Friends", a long-term engagement designed to combat the rising xenophobia and the sadly often existing prejudice towards cultures different from our own. The project's goal is to revive good old-fashioned manners of debating and to create, once again, a discussion culture that would champion "allowing your counterpart to reflect on a question before contradicting him right away", as it has, unfortunately, become the norm these days.
Her books largely cover the genres of poetry and fiction (short stories and essays, crime thrillers, satire and comedy). The latest are available as e-books worldwide. Audiobooks are also expected to follow soon. In some of them, the authoress will even take on the role of the narrator.
