About

Gisele Stein writes feel-good women’s fiction with a sprinkling of magic and places like characters. Born in Germany, she spent her twenties backpacking the UK, Europe and Asia, and has a secret soft spot for the Scottish highlands to this day.

A former tv-producer from Berlin, she navigated an unusual career change after a restless decade of backpacking-trips & tv-jobs: She trained as a safari guide in South Africa, eager to fulfil her desire to reconnect with Mother Nature and get out of her comfort zone. Encountering elephants, lions and giraffes in the wild, she developed a deep appreciation for the natural world – a theme strongly featuring throughout her books. During her Africa-stint, she met her now husband Frank – an Aussie  who whisked her away to Australia’s South West – a charming pocket of the world she is grateful to call home today.

 

An ocean-lover, Gisele tries to spend as much time as possible by the sea and hopes to befriend an octopus one day. She is a proud ambassador of the International Fund for Animal Welfare and still visits the African continent frequently to raise awareness for projects easing human-wildlife-conflict.

Behind the name: “Gisele Stein” is the pen-name of German bestselling author Gesa Neitzel, who writes non-fiction travel- and children’s books with a focus on African wildlife. Husband Frank just calls her “G” – and so can you 🙂
