Early life and education
Before she started writing, Winger worked as a professional photographer for more than a decade.
Winger's Deutschland 83, a television drama which she co-created with her husband Joerg, broadcast on Sundance TV (USA) in June 2015 and on RTL (Germany) in November and December 2015. The 8-episode series, about a young East German spy on an undercover mission to West Germany in 1983, had its world premiere when the first two episodes were shown at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival. Winger wrote the series in English, but it was shot in German. It is the first German-language series to be shown on American television.
Winger's first novel, This Must Be the Place, was published in 2008 by Riverhead Books. She is currently developing a television series for BBCAmerica, a darkly comic family drama set in contemporary Berlin. She is also working on a second novel that takes place in Mexico, where she lived growing up.
