As an accredited journalist, I covered ten Olympic Summer and Winter Games since 1992. My stories appeared in more than 20 books published by proSport, Bertelsmann and Das Neue Berlin. Of course, I wrote under my own name. Except for one case, when I worked as ghostwriter for a famous sports anchor of German television station ZDF and wrote his entire published by the formen German retail giant Quelle. In those books, it’s all about writing texts that last – this is the difference to the day-to-day journalism in newspapers or magazines.
On the editorial side, I’ve looked after about two dozen book titles – Olympic books as well as sports yearbooks and books on contemporary history. My job was to coordinate the collaboration of authors, translators and editors in up to six languages, and with regard to layout, typesetting and production.current
