Her books have been translated into nine languages.

Nicole C. Vosseler resides in Konstanz, situated on the banks of Lake Constance in Southwestern Germany - in a part of town officially called Paradise. When she is not working on one of her novels, she travels the world with her camera and a passion for food ethnology. Always looking for new adventures, she sometimes even climbs a volcano, in spite her fear of heights.
