#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?



...your nightmare is coming soon...


"Very ambitious!"

• Constantin Film 1992 •

"Put more behind it than you suspect"

• Mastermind •

Pascal Ringstahl was born on 24th December in Cologne and grew up first in the Westerwald, then through the early death of his mother in Kerpen-Horrem. At the age of 26, he moved back to Cologne, where he wanted to go to the Filmhochschule after successful training. For family reasons, he renounced this. To this day, he has not given up writing and living out his dreams, in addition to his successful professional career in wholesale ...

Through the early death of his mother, his family split up from one day to the next: his big sister grew up with his grandmother and he at his aunt. There was a contact ban between the siblings for more than 17 years. By this loss, the circumstances and the illness of his father, the hours of driving in the back seat, the eternal waiting in the hospital, he had already fled into a world determined by himself in his childhood. As a child, he dreamed of becoming something like a director. Since he could not write in the preschool age, he recorded his stories. Later they turned into books, short stories and novels. These act on people who enter unexpected situations where their lives and their inner attitudes change. Each book has a different genre and is self-contained. However, persons or acts of action appear which have an impact on the stories of the other books.
