I was born in Nordhorn. Unfortunately I had to leave my hometown already when I was a kid. I don't hold that against my parents anymore.
My original profile as "Nordhorner" worked only for the German Wikipedia and therefore I created a second profile: "Nordhorner II".
I had started in German because, quite frankly, as a beginner I felt more comfortable writing for a smaller readership.
When I started posting English articles I used to create a German version as a by-product because it seemed natural to me. Somehow I felt obliged to do something for those country fellowmen of mine who are not as familiar with English as I am. Well, the English version usually had ten times more readers. But the feedback was altogether different, not only in regards to quantity. Maybe a certain old German saying (concerning prophets who are allegedly never appreciated in their home country) contains some truth after all.
Recently I created an e-book titled "An Apprentice in Devil's Kitchen". Influenced by the aforementioned experience I wrote it in English too.
