12 Blogs of Christmas – Day 5, Helga Zeiner

Helga Zeiner photoI just love counting down. Who can believe we’re already on day 8?

Today’s post is by Helga Zeiner, a German born Canadian author. She left her home town Augsburg at age 18 to explore the world. In the following 14 years she has lived and worked in Australia and Asia. Her amazing experiences in those foreign countries are woven into all her thrilling novels.

Since 2004 she has lived with her husband on a country estate in the wilderness of British Columbia, devoting all her time to writing.  Helga Zeiner has published six novels in German and two in English. She is currently writing her third English thriller. Without further ado, here’s the beginning of her post.
