Nathalie was born in Luxembourg where she attended the Lycée de Garçons and the Centre Universitaire before moving to Germany to study German and English literature at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. In 1996 she spent a year as a lecturer in German at the University of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. After completing a PhD on fictional theory and the contemporary novel, she moved to London, where for ten years she worked as a producer and writer for an international audioguide company. She wrote tours for the Tower of London, the Imperial War Museum, Historic Scotland, English Heritage and the Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten, covering everything from rococo palaces to deserted medieval villages. She’s still not sure about the latter, though, as she might easily have mistaken a mole hill for the grassed-over remnants of a farm house. More tangible are the app Love Art, which she wrote for the National Gallery, and the tours Shakespeare’s London and Gaudí’s Barcelona, which may still be available online.

In 2009 Nathalie moved back to Luxembourg and trained as a teacher. She is currently teaching German and English at Lycée Ermesinde and works as a part-time researcher at the Centre national de littérature.
