Christine Schulz-Reiss (Loewe)
Christine Schulz-Reiss was born in 1956. She studied German literature, history, politics and communication sciences. She started working for several large German daily newspapers and first became a political news reporter, then deputy manager of the reports section of an important Munich-based newspaper. Since 1991 she has worked as a free-lance journalist, writing for various magazines, with a particular focus on adolescents - sometimes inspired by her own daughter. In 2004 she published her first book, "Guide to Politics" and was nominated for the Gustav-Heinemann-Peace-Award for it. In the meantime she has written several successful titles for Loewe, covering amongst others abstract issues such as ethics and philosophy in an entertaining and illustrative manner.
In all her books, she processes knowledge in a captivating and informative way, and succeeds in linking this knowledge with the immediate surrounding of her readers - she demonstrates how politics, ethics, or philosophy touch the lives of adolescents. In lectures held for students, teachers and parents she indicates how knowledge can be conveyed in a manner appropriate for adolescents.
Christine Schulz-Reiss and her family live near Munich.
