Anna Hertel Author

Hello and Welcome to my Website!

I’m Anna Hertel, a German writer writing Creative Non-Fiction in English. As a retired triathlete, former fitness business owner, and lifelong artist, I am now a candidate for the MFA Writing Program At California College of the Arts. Under the umbrella of its faculty, I am working on my memoir Brick by Brick; A woven narrative examining how my first Ironman triathlon experience facilitated recovering from an abusive relationship and removing other suboptimal circumstances by inadvertently starting a new dialogue with my body – one that pointed towards self-care and self-respect leading to the ultimate gift.
