Sabine Reichel was born in Hamburg, Germany, after the war, to an actor and a Lithuanian fashion illustrator. She grew up among the rubble of a bombed out city and a people silenced by guilt and shame. At 19, she became a journalist who covered the newly emerging music, fashion and art scene of the fabulous sixties in London and Germany. After experimenting life in a commune, she moved to New York in 1975. As a result she wrote her first book "What did you do in the War, Daddy?" 15 years later. She has written 10 more books and several screenplays since, and lives in Los Angeles. Sabine has several successful blogs (www.huffingtonpost.com/sabine-reichel/) and works as a stylist, designer, model, translator.
