About The Author

I am a Swiss writer and animal advocate.

I am at my happiest in the great outdoors, playing sports. I walked part of the Way of Santiago in 2108 and I hope to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in the near future.

My passion for the environment and wildlife started when I was a child. I grew up surrounded by pets and all kinds of animals and It always felt they were part of my family. I believe they have shaped me, and the compassion and respect towards them Is without a doubt deeply instilled in me.

I work alongside non-profit organisations to protect animal rights, and fight animal cruelty. I have three dogs, BV, Shea and Lola.


In 2014 I released a children's book , Lester's Planet, that tells the story with a paw of imagination, of a little chihuahua with a bottomless stomach.


Ela Green and the Kingdom of Abud is my first novel in a trilogy and introduces Ela Green, a fourteen-year-old girl. Her first adventure reveals the mysterious bond she shares with Mother Nature and her encounter with the wise-tree.

The adventure starts in the present day at Waldegg boarding school on the shores of lake Geneva in Switzerland .The formidable school is the connecting link in a story that will time-travel you through continents and centuries.
