The idea for the blog stories came about on a joint holiday more than 10 years ago. I showed Susan a funny short story I had written as a child and which had been chosen for a competition. It was about a turtle, and Susan swiftly drew the most adorable turtle - and it all grew from there!
I am German, since 2014 also British, and came to Edinburgh, Scotland over 25 years ago. I love this city, and live here with my son and 3 ragdoll cats. I speak German with my partner, my son, some of my colleagues - but am obviously surrounded by English, love language in general, and feel more British by now. The cultural differences sometimes feature in my blog stories.
Susan is a successful professional illustrator and artist with over 25 years experience, and she lives and works in Perth, Scotland.
She is also one of my best friends and has kindly provided some illustrations as well as buckets of encouragement for my blog stories. You can find out more about Susan's amazing art from her website as well as her Facebook page.
