Dirk van den Boom
Dirk van den Boom, born 1966, lives with his wife and two children in the not so beautiful German city of Saarbruecken, near France. He has been active in the German SF-Fandom for decades, started writing professionally in the early 90ies and has published a variety of novels with small presses. Additionally, he is co-editor of Germany's foremost SF/F-news-website www.phantastik.de. Before he will get rich and famous through SF-writing, he is hibernating as a consultant to feed his family.
