CE Bernard has been writing fiction her entire life. Her novels are published by Penguin Random House in Germany and HarperCollins in the UK. She has been teaching the Novel Writing Workshop at the University of Bonn since 2014. Nominated for the RPC Fantasy Award and Lovelybooks Reader Award. Winner of the prizes of the Young Academies of Europe and the Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghause.

As Christine Lehnen, she has contributed to The New Federalist, 42 Magazine, and DW.com. Her research has been published in the Journal of Literary Theory and Alluvium. Holding a BA and MA in English Literatures and Cultures from the Universities of Bonn and Paris III, Christine is currently pursuing a PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Manchester, wondering why it is that everyone seems to be writing novels about the Trojan war at the moment, and taking a stab at it herself.

Christine has lived in Canada, the United States, Australia, and Paris, and now splits her time between Bonn  and Manchester. In her spare time, she is mostly out hiking, inside baking, or in Oxenfurt, saving the world with Geralt of Rivia.
