Biography

Antonia Michaelis was born in Kiel in 1979 and went to school in Augsburg, where she spent 13 years secretly writing books under her desk rather than paying much attention. After graduating she taught English, art and theater classes in South India, and went on to study medecine in Greifswald. She frequently worked in hospitals in various far-flung countries, preferably located on isolated mountaintops and lacking electricity. Later she gave up the medical profession and now lives with her husband and young daughter in an old house on the Baltic coast, where she spends her days collecting new stories amongst the nettles and elder bushes.
