About me

Hi folks!

My name is Marcel Weyers and when I’m not writing a book, I edit novels, translate video games, or travel around the world! Most recently I was traveling in Australia and was either diving with sharks or cuddling with wombats.

The key data

I was born in 1991 and grew up in the beautiful cathedral city of Limburg an der Lahn in Germany. Today I live with my husband in Dresden. Ever since I was little, I have devoured books – nowadays I read about 120 books a year (follow me on Goodreads!) – and was fascinated by languages. That’s the reason why I have been working professionally with texts since 2011 and supporting authors, publishers, and developers in the implementation of their projects. Whether writing, translating, or proofreading – I love good stories!


Apart from reading, I love to travel – for example in New Zealand and Australia. If you want to accompany me on my adventures, have a look at driftr. I often work remotely, so feel free to contact me if you need help with a project! I’d be happy if you’d write to me!
