After graduating with a M.A. in Literature and Education at Hamburg University and obtaining the translation diploma from the Karlsruhe Chamber of Commerce, she moved to Switzerland where she worked in legal services and accounting. She met her Dutch husband Huub in Zurich, and they moved to Alsatia (a region in the East of France) in 1995, together with their four children. Sophie is working as a free lance magazine editor, translator and writer, and has been investigating various forms of alternative education. She loves to travel and still dreams about following Kara Ben Nemsi’s trail through the Maghreb, Asia Minor and the Balkan region.
