Brief bio and recent publications

I was born in Austria and now live in Edinburgh. I hold a BA in English and American studies from the University of Graz, an MSc in Creative Writing from the University of Edinburgh, and I am pursuing a PhD researching gender equality in contemporary Scottish writing and publishing at the University of Stirling in partnership with University of Glasgow and Scottish Book Trust. Find out more about my research here.

I am a published writer of fiction and creative non-fiction, and was selected as one of Queer Words Project Scotland‘s five Emerging Writers in 2018. You can find a full list of publications here.

Non-fiction: No Filter

I was delighted to contribute an essay on bisexuality, being greedy, and millennials to the Unbound anthology No Filter (forthcoming – crowdfunding now), edited by Hilary Bell. You can read an extract from my essay here.

Non-fiction: Nasty Women

I am proud to have an essay included in 404 Ink’s Nasty Women (2017). My essay is on grief, food and family, and grapples with the things we inherit from each other and the imperative to procreate. It’s called “Hard Dumplings for Visitors.” (In the above picture, I’m the second person from the left.)
