Biography

Wulf Dorn has created characters such as Jan Forstner, Mark Behrendt, Doro Beck, Simon Strode, Robert Winter and many others. His psychological suspense novels have become international bestsellers and won him numerous awards, including the French Prix Polar for Best International Novel.

Wulf began writing short stories at the age of twelve and had his first publication in a local paper at sixteen. In the following years his stories were published in newspapers, magazines and anthologies.

In October 2009, his debut thriller, TRIGGER, became an instant success; the enthralling story of psychiatrist Ellen Roth was translated into numerous languages and sold over a million copies around the globe. To date, Wulf's books have made it to the bestseller lists in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Turkey and Uruguay.

Before becoming a full-time writer, Wulf worked as a psychiatric therapist and clinical researcher. For twenty years he supported people with mental disorders in vocational rehabilitation and as a job coach.

Besides his writing, Wulf has translated texts by David Bowie, Mario Puzo, David Lynch, Francis Ford Coppola and Jack the Ripper into German.

He also is a narrator of audio books and had stage readings with actors such as Iris Berben, Anna Thalbach, Bibiana Beglau, Ekkehardt Belle, Benno Fürmann and German punk legend Bela B.

Last but not least, he is known for the appearances with New Zealand author Paul Cleave. The 'Paulf Fiction' tours are iconic to their fans. (The duo's name comes from a combination of their first names "after some G&Ts").
