Daniela Krien was born on August 25, 1975. She grew up in East Germany, moving to Leipzig, where she studied communications and founded a production company that specializes in movies about artists.
Her debut novel, Irgendwann Werden Wir Uns Alles Erzählen (Someday, We’ll Tell Each Other Everything), was published in 2011 as both print and audio edition. In 2013, English and French translations were published. Internationally, critics have lauded the crisp language of her writing. Her follow-up novel was published in 2013.
Irgendwann Werden Wir Uns Alles Erzählen tells the story of 16-year-old Maria, who is living with her boyfriend on his parents’ farm. It is the summer of 1990, shortly after the fall of the Wall. When she meets 40-year-old Henner, she jumps headlong into a love affair, ignoring all repercussions her decisions will bring.
“Krien’s beguiling love story is racy yet controlled. An authentic voice, she describes perfectly the shame, confusion and growing maturity of sixteen-year-old Maria.” (Kirkus Reviews)
