About the Author

Oliver Potzsch

Born in 1970 in Munich, Oliver Potzsch is a German writer and filmmaker. The Hangman’s Daughter is Potzsch’s first novel – originally titled The Executioner’s Daughter.

Potzsch holds a degree from the Munich School of Journalism and spent much of his early career working in radio and television.  Potzsch’s penchant for genealogy led him to write The Hangman’s Daughter when he discovered that he was a descendant of the Kuisl clan – a long line of German executioners.  His novel’s main character, Jakob Kuisl, is based upon Potzsch’s real life ancestor.

Potzsch has also written:

The Executioner’s Daughter and the Black Monk, Ullstein, Berlin 2009

The Executioner’s Daughter and the King of the Beggars, Ullstein, Berlin 2010
