Rena Dumont

Rena Dumont was born in 1969 in Prostejov, a small town in Moravia. At the age of seventeen she escaped to Germany with her mother, and they spent eight eventful weeks in an asylum seeker’s home on the shores of Lake Königsee before moving on to Munich. Four years later, Rena relocated to Hanover to attend drama school, and has been appearing at various German- speaking theatres – the Munich Kammerspiele, Vienna Playhouse and Prague National Theatre to name but a few – as well as acting in numerous cinema and TV productions and writing screenplays and short stories. Paradiessucher is her first novel.
