I’ve been making up stories since I can remember and writing is what keeps me going.
As a writer and peace activist, I believe that creative work, art, and storytelling can be a healing tool in conflict resolution. I also believe that creativity is something that’s given to all of us and that can be evoked, trained and used to enrich and enchant our lives.

Wor(l)d Peace Workshops
What happens when you put a 30 Israelis and Palestinians in one room with nothing but pens and paper?
We wanted to find out.
“This workshop managed to connect people. To humanize people. It was a good reminder for me too, that there are friendly people in Gaza and Lebanon and everywhere despite the hardship.”

When I’m not working, writing, arguing with my cat, or sleeping in, I’m on the road giving talks about the Peace Factory, Wor(l)d Spirit Workshops or literary readings on my latest novel. Learn more about upcoming projects here.
Peace is not something that happens, when a war ends. Peace starts with the people, one person at a time. Peace starts, when we begin to connect and reach out to each other, when we talk, meet and learn about each other. Today, it’s easier than ever to reach out to the other side. All it takes is one click on Facebook and you can make a new friend.
Peace is, when we stop seeing each other as enemies and start seeing each other as people. All we have to do is talk.
Creative Writing Workshops
„I didn’t know I could write and had no idea about this whole creative concept. I was so blocked the first day, I thought I’d quit and give a sh*t about it. But then I kind of got in the mood. Creative writing gave me something back I didn’t know I was missing.
