Alice Gabathuler (1961) was born, grew up, and still lives in Canton St. Gallen. She writes stories for children and young people. Usually these turn into books, sometimes into radio plays. She loves to dream up characters, immerse herself in their worlds and, for a while, live their lives. She has received many awards for her books for young people and her radio plays, among others the Hansjörg-Martin Prize for the best German-language young adult mystery novel, #no_way_out.
