Nancy is a writer of poetry, short stories and longer texts on a variety of topics in both English and German and her works have been published in both languages. Nancy’s particular interest, both in fiction and academically, are female vampires.

She has been researching, reading and writing vampires for years. She has a master’s degree in English Literature from the University of Leipzig. Her MA thesis formed the basis to Take A Bite, available in vamped up form for public consumption.

Her crime story, Kaffeeduft in London, is currently only available in German but she’d be more than happy to translate the story into English for any interested publisher.
