I’m Anika Scott, American author/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 15 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’m thrilled to announce my novel will be debuting in Spring 2020 with Hutschinson /PenguinRandomHouse in the UK, William Morrow/HarperCollins in the US, and other wonderful international publishers.
