My Monday guest, Christoph Fischer, author of historical novels and contemporary family dramas
Posted on January 25, 2016
Iā€™m absolutely delighted to welcome Christoph Fischer today. Christoph was born in Germany, near the Austrian border, the son of a Sudeten-German father and a Bavarian mother. Not a full local in the eyes and ears of his peers, he developed an ambiguous sense of belonging at home in Bavaria. He moved to Hamburg in pursuit of his studies and to lead a life of literary indulgence. After a few years he moved on to the UK where he now lives in a small town in West Wales. He and his partner have three Labradoodles to complete their family.

Christoph worked for the British Film Institute, in Libraries, Museums and for an airline.

How would you describe yourself as a colour, Christoph?

Warm but dark blue canvass oil. I like the idea of a solid consistency as opposite to runny water but I like that oil can have light or darker shades.

Are you a morning person, or a midnight candle burner?

Definitely a morning person ā€“ much to the joy of the dogs and to the annoyance of my midnight candle burning partner.

Ah! Tell me something you would like your readers to know about you.

Iā€™m currently organising a local Book Fair in Llandeilo. It is being held on April 30th and I would like all your Welsh followers and readers to come and visit.
