Horst and Julia Drosten write together using the pseudonym
Julia Drosten. They live in the picturesque Münsterland region, Germany.
of Germany and have always wanted to write books. They find
the research to be almost as much fun. For Das Revuemädchen
they have flown in a historic biplane and for Die Seidenrose they
have been pampered by an aesthetician. Before writing Die
Honigprinzessin, they became beekeepers; for The Girl with the
Golden Scissors, they traced the streets of 19th century Vienna,
and for The Elephant Keeper’s Daughter, they visited Sri Lanka to
spend time with wild elephants.
Many books were bestsellers on Amazon.

House of the Stolen Children won the Amazon Kindle Storyteller Award 2021 in Germany.

It was not yet as selfpublishers but with a big German publishing house and we were incredibly proud that we got a contract.(less)

Dear Susanna, currently the Girls with the Golden Scissors is available in German and English. There is also interest from a Spanish publisher but not from an Italian publishing house.
