Anna Hertel  Triathlete and Writer



My name is Anna and this is my website which I keep updated to help me stay accountable and to share what I think can be useful for others. I am a German Writer who writes Creative Non-Fiction in English. I am also a former Animation Artist. And a two-time IRONMAN Triathlon Finisher and a finisher of forty-three smaller triathlons. And a former Personal Trainer and Business Owner of A health and Fitness Coaching business. I am also a black belt in Taekwondo.

I now pursue an MFA at California College of the Arts to work on my book, Brick By Brick.

But get this: For twenty years, 20!!!, I have been wanting to illustrate and write for children books. Drawing has always been something I have enjoyed with great passion and I even studied Animation and graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. Somehow though, I never dared to pursue it. So now is the time. This page is here to accompany me, to hold me accountable, and to document my journey along this age long dream of mine.

So in a nutshell, this site is about:

  • Illustration and Writing for Childrenbooks

  • Writing and Publishing my first Memoir

  • Implementing sustainable health and fitness routines

  • Raising awareness for toxin-free skin care, thanks to Beautycounter!

I hope to connect with other writers and illustrators and simultaneously raise awareness of health related subjects, especially focusing on skin care. Here is Why:
