Born in the early 70s, I grew up in a little village in Austria. At the age of 18, I moved to Vienna to get my master’s degree in Political Sciences, French, and Spanish. Today, I’m living in Paris, France, with my boyfriend and work as a graphic designer.
In my spare time, I write, read, cook fancy recipes, take photos, and as often as I can, I travel (Italy, Portugal, Morocco, Egypt, the UK, and many more places). My literary tastes are eclectic, ranging from fantasy, murder mysteries, and gay romances to dystopian novels, but I won’t say no to poetry or a history book either. I’m more a hoodie/jeans/sneakers kind of guy than a suit-and-tie chap.
So far, I’ve published two short-story collections, four poetry collections, and four novels (to find out more, please check out my author website). My first murder mystery novel “The Stuffed Coffin” has been released on January 6, 2019, and is available in English, German and French. It has won the French Gay Crime Fiction Award 2019 (Prix du roman policier / Prix du roman gay 2019).
You can also find me on Rainbow Book Reviews, where I write book reviews under the pseudonym of ParisDude. Last but not least, together with my boyfriend I run the website Livres Gay (in French), where we review and discuss gay novels.
