Anika Willmanns was born in South Africa. After spending her childhood with her loving grandparents, she moved to Germany at the age of eleven to live with her mother, stepfather and little sister. She suspects moving halfway around the world at that exact age caused her Hogwarts letter to go missing.
She is a paranormal romance and urban fantasy author, whose computer is a graveyard of abandoned story ideas. She has an unhealthy addiction to coffee and chocolate. When she's not reading or writing, you can find her designing book covers or curled up on the couch with her husband, Christian, watching the newest Netflix show. Most of her stories feature vampires, witches and werewolves, so be advised to keep your windows closed while reading.
