Let's see if this form of visibility will bring an influx of readers. At least it was fun to answer the questions (despite a few spelling mistakes that made it through).
From now on, I'm author of the month on a German publishing platform: adm-gruen-april15 When they asked me, I was naturally quite surprised. Of course I was quite happy about it and answered readily all the questions they asked my in an interview. It seemed that the plan alone to visit the ...

No time...
Hi, I just discovered that I've got no time because I've already written and translated 19% of my yearly goal of 350,000 words. That's twice as much as I wrote last year, and I'm not breaking a sweat (although I do have very little time for other things). L...

another interesting It Figures. Will's amster smith of words. ;-)
Because in the end you have to show, not tell. In this installment I provide a brief peek at a character who figures “highly” in the history of the Lands, but whose personal history goes much deeper. WHO: In the early days. Yula is a Dwarven warrior and one of the mainstay fighters in the ...

Mal sehen, ob mir diese Form von Werbung etwas bringen wird. Immerhin hat es Spaß gemacht, die Fragen zu Beantworten (obwohl sich natürlich wieder ein paar Flüchtigkeitsfehler eingeschlichen haben).

Ich bin ab sofort: adm-gruen-april15 Als ich gefragt wurde, hat mich das sehr überrascht. Natürlich freute ich mich sehr darüber und habe bereitwillig alle Fragen beantwortet, die mir im Interview gestellt wurden. Es scheint, als habe allein der Plan, zur Leipziger Buchmesse zu gehen, ...

I bet this costume took a while to make. The lady told me she made all her costumes herself. Great work. This entry was posted in Bookworm's Musings, cosplayer, misc.. Bookmark the permalink. ← Cosplayer Two. Leave a Reply Cancel reply. Your email address will not be published.

Introduction

English:

Katharina Gerlach was born in Germany in 1968. She and her three younger brothers grew up in the middle of a forest in the heart of the Luneburgian Heather. After romping through the forest with imagination as her guide, the tomboy learned to read and disappeared into magical adventures, past times or eerie fairytale woods.

She didn’t stop at reading. During her training as a landscape gardener, she wrote her first novel, a manuscript full of a beginner’s mistakes. Fortunately, she found books on Creative Writing and soon her stories improved. For a while, reality interfered with her writing but after finishing a degree in forestry and a PhD in Science she returned to her vocation. She likes to write Fantasy, Science Fiction and Historical Novels for all age groups.

At present, she is writing at her next project in a small house near Hildesheim, Germany, where she lives with her husband, three children and a dog. Katharina Gerlach has had various short stories published in Germany as well as a non-fiction e-book in US-Fantasy author Holly Lisle’s “The 33 Worst Mistakes Writers Make About …” series.


German:

Katharina Gerlach wurde 1968 geboren und wuchs mit drei jüngeren Brüdern mitten in einem Wald im Herzen der Lüneburger Heide auf. Schon früh verschwand sie tagelang in magischen Abenteuern, vergangenen Zeiten oder unheimlichen Märchenwäldern, denn auch junge Wilde lernen irgendwann Lesen.

Es blieb nicht beim Lesen. Während einer Lehre zur Landschaftsgärtnerin schrieb sie ihren ersten Roman, ein Buch voller Anfängerfehler. Zum Glück gab es auch Bücher darüber, wie man es richtig macht, und so erschienen bald die ersten Kurzgeschichten.

Zurzeit lebt sie mit ihrem Mann, drei Kindern und einem Hund in einem Häuschen nicht weit von Hildesheim und - na, was wohl - schreibt an ihrem nächsten Roman. Katharina Gerlach hat diverse Kurzgeschichten in Anthologien veröffentlicht, sowie ein E-Book für die Serie The 33 Worst Mistakes Writers Make About … der bekannten amerikanischen Fantasy-Autorin Holly Lisle
