Writer Profile

Andreas Neuenkirchen

Andreas Neuenkirchen was born a while ago in Bremen, Germany, where he immediately started writing bad sci-fi, fantasy, and horror stories. Transitioning to somewhat readable journalism in his 20s, he moved to Munich (still Germany), where he worked as an editor for print (passionately) and Big Data (reluctantly, yet profitably). Eventually, he bought himself a conscience and moved to Tokyo, Japan, where his wife is from. Today he identifies as a permanent essayist, frequent novelist, and occasional screenwriter. He has written 12 books in German, all but one about Japan.
