for books to tell stories
there has to be someone who listens to them closely.

My strength is my weakness for books. I have been active in the book sector for
more than 25 years, most recently as the long-standing editor-in-chief at the publishing house Frederking & Thaler.

The fund of narrative possibilities has become more abundant, be it the novel,
non-fiction, or the illustrated book; the audio book, e-book, or app. My expertise is
identifying subjects and translating them into the appropriate format. I am articulate and
word-perfect, bring along a trained eye for photography as well as many years of experience, an international network, and a wealth of ideas.

People love stories – in words, in pictures. They want to understand themselves and
the world; read, listen, see. And: they want to be surprised.
