Brigitte Riebe (born 1953 in Munich) is a German author of crime and feminist fiction. She writes thrillers under the pseudonym Lara Stern. She lives with her husband in Munich.


After high school Brigitte Riebe studied at the University of Munich. She received a PhD based on a thesis on the development of the bourgeois woman paradigm at the turn of the 18th to the 19th century. She then worked as a museum educator and later as an editor for several German publishers. In 1991 she gave up her job as a senior editor at Bertelsmann to become a writer. Since then, she has written many books in various genres.

In 1992, Riebe published her first book, the crime novel Nix Dolci, which introduced the lawyer Sina Teufel, who became regular figure in her later works. One of the Sina Teufel-based novels was released as a movie: 'Inzest - Ein Fall für Sina Teufel ' (Incest -A Case for Sina Teufel) in 1996.

In addition to her detective novels Brigitte Riebe has also published several novels about modern society.
