#1 MeinHard:

The story tells in the "I" perspective from 1991 and an indefinite time after. It is mainly read and interpreted in the diaries and letters of the main protagonists. Among other things, it involves the parents' lack of understanding and recklessness towards their children, if they do not adhere to the norm of society, since they would thereby deny their own personality. The story around MeinHard aims at an inevitable ending, a one way ticket without a happy ending.


MeinHard existed from 2014 to 2016 as an e-book exclusively in English-speaking countries. Until now no book edition is planned.

# 4 [səverəti] Severity is just ONE love story: has not everyone ever experienced it? Something like love at first sight? A feeling as one would know the other one down to the smallest detail? You just want to be together with the other one? The difficulty is only when the person of personal desire does not know or get to know you at all! So it ends then in an eternal senseless enthusiasm, which eventually fades but raises the question again and again: "What if ..." That's what happens to Sabina, a young, handsome, successful and popular student. Her first day at new university and she meets Raymund. He is a cute, stubborn and reserved nerd. The fascination with him makes her forget every clear and logical thought. Only Raymund does not care about her. But Sabina does everything to change that, and it does not end up in a senseless rapture. However, it always happens differently than one hopes in his dreams ... and every cliché is fulfilled. This is the 4th book by Pascal Ringstahl: After the pure e-book MeinHard, the horror thriller Scrunch about the Twin Dogs and the educationally valuable novel Calyx, he now sets out with Severity on a different path: into the futility of fanaticism. Experience the journey into a past, when you suddenly fell in love with a person who in reality did not fit in with you or did not return your feelings. But what would have happened if it had developed a relationship?

Pascal Ringstahl: Author and dreamer


Pascal Ringstahl was born on December 24 in Cologne and spent his childhood in the idyllic Westerwald before fate brought him to Kerpen-Horrem after the early loss of his mother. The traumatic events of his youth not only shaped his personality, but also his creative passion for writing and the art of film. After an eventful youth, Pascal was drawn back to his native Cologne at the age of 26. There he cherished the dream of attending film school and bringing his visions to life on the big screen. But life had other plans for him, and for family reasons he had to abandon this plan. Despite these setbacks, he never gave up his passion for writing and realizing his dreams. The early loss of his mother and the resulting family circumstances not only shaped his life, but also his artistic work. Even at a young age, he took refuge in his own world of fantasy and dreams. As a child, he dreamed of becoming a director, and although he could not write at first, he found an expression for his thoughts and ideas through drawings and later through screenplays, short stories and novels. Pascal's works are characterized by unexpected twists and profound characters who find themselves in extraordinary situations, transforming both externally and internally. Each of his books is self-contained, but he skillfully interweaves characters and storylines that have an impact on the stories of his other works. Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of Pascal Ringstahl, an author who transcends the boundaries of reality with his stories and takes his readers on an unforgettable journey through the human psyche and the realm of fantasy.
