Why crime novels and thrillers?
Before the author started writing thrillers and crime thrillers, she tried the genres romance, fantasy and contemporary history.
It came to the thriller / thriller genre after reading a gripping documentary about the Austrian serial killer Jack Unterweger.
The "jail poet" convicted of murder came prematurely at the instigation of well-known Austrian intellectuals
and was able to kill nine other women unmolested before the FBI profilers finally introduced him.
Her subsequent research on case analysis in Germany inspired Symone Hengy to change genres.
