Yvonne Knop was born and raised in Germany. They have been a translator, researcher, teacher, and scholar. They have survived a blizzard in Minneapolis, the food in a British local pub, and survived a well-nigh plane crash. For years, Yvonne Knop was searching for queer novels that depict life with all its facets; from the absurd and hilarious to the tragic and mournfully. After having read all novels there are fitting this category, they decided to write their own novels to expand the list. 'A Case of Madness' is their first published work of fiction.
