Grumpy German with a wicked sense of humor, not a shred of political correctness, and few shits left to give.
Published author and manifestation queen. Writer of whatever kind of fiction or nonfiction strikes her fancy: from kid lit... to horror short stories for adults... to perky and pertinent advice for the young, middle-aged, and menopausal.
Believe it or not, I'm actually a VDPP-certified Life, Family, and Marriage Counselor and Psychotherapist.
However, after a few (pro bono) test sessions, it became pretty clear that I lacked the patience to deal with patients.
Mostly, I just wanted to smack them upside the head and tell them to stop acting like victims., which I'm sure would have gone over really well.
So ask me anything you want—at your own peril. (Oh, and of course, all of this is exclusively for entertainment purposes. Disclaim, disclaim.)
