About me...
Born in the Beatlemania / Babyboomer years, Alex Ames was raised with some of the greatest spy and action writers of the Sixties/Seventies/Eighties on his pillow.

He always dreamed to — but never dared to — become a famous jewel thief,  computer hacker, or super spy. After some consideration the only morally feasible option was to become a writer and to create something along the lines of "To Catch a Thief meets Stephanie Plum". Calendar Moonstone, acclaimed jewelry maker for the rich and royals and famous and part time cat burglar, was born.

Alex lives in Munich, Germany. He passes the German Central Intelligence Agency every day commuting to work —hey, isn't that another great opportunity for a story? What if... a bored accountant is a former spy/elite soldier becomes involved in a work-related mystery that will need all his spy-skills... (read the result: "Troubleshooter")

Über mich...

Alex Ames ist kein Pirat und auch kein Junge mehr. Aber die Abenteuer des Piratenjungen hätten ihm auch so oder so ähnlich passieren können - an der See beim Windsurfen oder beim Skateboarden. Oder aus der langweiligen Schule entführt zu werden.
