Andreas Mand (born December 14, 1959) is a German contemporary author of novels, short stories and essays and a playwright. He is one of the representatives of the German Popular literature, and in addition a stay-at-home dad, because he wanted to be an active part of his children's lives.


Education and life

Andreas Mand was born in Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany as the son of a parson.
After elementary school he attended the Fichte- Gymnasium Krefeld. Then he studied at the University of Osnabrück and attained the Magister degree in Media Studies. Later he lived for a while in Berlin and Duisburg. Several years he has been working as a stay at home father, and only wrote in his leisure, while his wife works outside of the home. Sometimes, the role of stay-at-home dad was difficult for him, because in Germany, this practice is less common. Today, Andreas Mand is working and living in Minden, North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany).
