This is the official website of Rich Winterstetter, hobby writer and author of the Sci-Fi Thriller The Foreign Effect.

Rich Winterstetter likes to write and doesn’t really care that he is not really that good at it. His parents made the mistake of raising him with Star Wars and Star Trek and therefore ruined him for more traditional fiction.
When he is not constructing bleak Science Fiction settings or writing biographic texts about himself in the third person, Rich is a big tabletop and video-gaming nerd and occasionally even posts something on his blog on this site.
The 31-year-old lives in Bavaria, Germany with an imaginary wombat called Bruce and too many distractions from writing.


“The Foreign Effect” is his first publication.
