[things that actually happen or are true; maybe in another world]
books are my alternate reality - however I not only like reading books, I also like writing them...

so far I have finished two and done some short stories as well. you can read some excerpts here.

In this essay (why I write) I have jotted down some of my reasons about, well, why I write (that's why I chose the title... clever, hugh?)

jet stream is the story about a long hot summer. not just any summer but a real scorcher. the summer of the century. charging for his lifetime achievement and generally trying to get a leg up, however, nick stumbles from one day of wrong moves into another. his life becoming more and more like a roller coaster ride, he finally manages to get a grip and learns to surf the wave. not a surf-novel as such, this is more about the quest for love, life and happiness.

hotdogs & hamburgers is a novel about the burden of the past and about finding a way through a world of change. it's supposed to have an 'on the road' atmosphere combined with reflexions about life, the universe and everything.
