Natasa Dragnic was born in 1965 in Split, Croatia. When she was eighteen she moved away for the first time to pursue a degree in German and Romance studies in Zagreb. In 1995 she earned a master’s degree in literature. She also completed a degree in diplomacy in Zagreb and Berlin but soon realised that diplomacy isn’t for her.

Only to leave again in 1994 and move to Germany, to Erlangen, where she continue to work as a freelance foreign language instructor: She teaches German as a foreign language, French, English and Croatian. In addition, she also speaks Spanish.

When she was six she wrote her first poem. It was about an apple which remained hanging on a tree unpicked until it shrivelled and fell. Four verses. Four decades later, in 2011, her first novel “Jeden Tag, jede Stunde” (“Every Day, Every Hour”) is being published by the German publisher DVA. And as if that weren’t enough, the book was sold in more then 20 countries even before its publication. She feels overwhelmed with the good fortune that the hundreds upon hundreds of pages that she wrote have paid off. She is glad to pass along her love of reading and writing in various workshops and lectures.
