I was visiting assistant professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I have studied psychology and philosophy at the University of Bielefeld, Germany, and received my Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Konstanz, Germany. I am the author of "Reid's Philosophy of Psychology" (2005), "Emotions: Their Rationality and Consistency" (2006), "Common Sense: Its History, Method, and Applicability" (2007), "God’s Rational Warriors: The Rationality of Faith Considered" (2008), and "Mixed Feelings: Emotional Phenomena, Rationality and Vagueness" (2009). "Nameless Simon" (2011) is my first fantasy books for adults.
What will readers like about my book?
It is a combination of elements from the "Twilight Saga" (love, vampires), "The Lord of the Rings" (war and elves), "The Golden Compass" (possible worlds), and "Harry Potter" (magic).
Why did I choose to self-publish?
Because right now I don’t have the time to search for a decent agent. Besides I could spend my time with many other in my eyes more worthwhile things. After all we only have one life.
My favourite authors?
I learnt a lot from Stephen King's book on writing. I love Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight Saga", but am interested in all kinds of fiction, from South African to South American, to British, American, Russian, French and of course German fiction. Tolkien is among my favourites and Rowling.
