I am a German-born American, naturalized a few years ago, originally from the former DDR (GDR in English), the former East Germany. I have another pen name, ottohauser1977, and have a story posted under this name, too. This one was created when I had trouble accessing my previous author account. Much of my writing so is based on my sexual fantasies and thus my character speaks in the first person and has the same name as me. It is still a character, however, and the narrative is not necessarily autobiographical. I may post a true story someday, however.
