I’m Anika Scott, American journalist and history buff. My work has appeared in newspapers, magazines and websites in the United States and Europe. In Germany, I’ve worked in radio and taught journalism seminars at an eastern German university.
When I moved to Germany from Chicago more than 10 years ago, I knew a few things about German history, but nothing about the language. Now I can dig through books, websites and archives for information in the original German. I’ve come across details that haven’t been translated or publicized.
Some of those details are included in my debut novel, a suspense set in postwar Germany. I recently joined the client list at Watson, Little Ltd, a literary agency in London. When my first novel is spit-polished, they’ll be shopping it to publishers. Wish me luck!
