My name is Annika von Holdt.

I am a socially awkward geek in a nice outfit – that’s how my son sums me up, short hand. What can I say? He knows me best.

I am also an award-winning author of four bestselling thrillers.

Additionally, I have written four books of non-fiction, two screenplays, two autobiographies – as a ghost writer – and a number of short stories and anthology contributions.

I have a degree in computer science and business technology, and I run a programming-gig on the side. I am a licensed private pilot as well.

I was born on a small island in Denmark, spent the first six years of my existence under Savannah’s hanging moss, and I have since lived and worked in Paris, Milan and New York. I now live in Denmark (and periodically in the Bahamas) with my husband, our teenage son, a grumpy rescue cat, and an angel disguised as a golden retriever.
