Berlinale, Here We Come! February 4, 2021

So excited that my Rowohlt Verlag novel “Das Rätsel von Ainsley Castle” was chosen as one of ten novels to be presented in March with “Books at Berlinale,” an event sponsored by the Berlinale - Berlin International Film Festival with the Frankfurt Book Fair. It offers publishers and agents the chance to pitch their books to internationally established film producers. The working title for the film adaptation of my book is “Double Puzzle.” More information behind the link.
