As the writer of technical texts on the topics of software and methodology, he has been working as a freelancer since 2003 for various companies involved in mechanical and systems engineering.
In the wake of this, his job included delivering complex facts to readers in simple words. But the texts he wrote remained the property of his clients and therefore have not been published. Between his job and his family, there was not much time left to write, a few short stories at most.
After his children moved out, he sold his house and devoted more of his time to writing. The novel “The End of God” is his second piece of work also available in German titled “Das Ende Gottes”.
