Dr. Friederike Kunath studied German Language & Literature and Protestant Theology in Germany. After doing her theological Phd in Berlin, she moved to Uster near Zurich in Switzerland. She got divorced, became a writing coach, founded her own company together with her partner Franz Tóth, and started becoming a jazz-singer.
Her company SchreibStimme is located in Uster (ZH) and offers courses, coaching and services in the areas of writing, speaking and video creation.
Friederike has always loved to express herself through writing and is intrigued by the power of writing for self-development. She helps writers, bloggers, pastors, students and phd-students finishing their texts and improving their writing. She empowers and inspires them to find their own authentic expression and to be successful from the inside out.
Cindia grew up keenly aware of food traditions and storytelling, and she has been reading since she was three. Possessing an insatiable curiosity about the world, travel and exploring cultures became a passion. While working as a consultant, dining became one of the few ways to find quiet time or to celebrate.
Having worked internationally in IT and management consulting, and for organizations like the United Nations and Swiss Banking, she brings her vast business experience to publishing. She is passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship and engaging the senses for new ways of storytelling.
Cindia and her husband share the cultures from countries as diverse as Germany, United States, China and Australia, and they live in Switzerland and sometimes Slovakia (yes, another story). There they celebrate the best of their diverse cultural backgrounds and enjoy exploring through travel, reading, spending time in nature, and tasting all that life has to offer.
“The Spice Temple – The Journey Beings” is the first of six novels. She looks forward to sharing the Journey with you!
