Sarah Nisi has lived in London since 2012. She was born in Hildesheim, and worked as a corporate lawyer in Düsseldorf for several years before moving to London to study creative writing.
Since then the German–British author has dedicated most of her time to writing. Many of her short stories have already been included in antholo¬gies from various German publishers, and she came second in the German Agatha Christie Prize for crime writing with her story Clear the Stage.
“I Want to Be Close to You” is her first novel.
