I'm into this at the moment and having a lot of fun.

Fairy tales were the first stories I read on my own, and I loved them. My favorite is an obscure tale called "The Spiderhans" and it tells the story of a girl who defeat a giantess to get her cow b...

Will Hahn says:

I worked out a release schedule with my publisher—oh hold on, tiny detail—

I signed a contract and everything. Two or three times a week I take it out, read it, see my signature at the bottom and just giggle like a schoolgirl.

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
