Hello Readers in Germany,

I'm happy to let you know that my next book will be available in September 2018!

Die Schaller-Weingüter sind legendär im Weinland Kalifornien. Aber jetzt steht Nicole, Urenkelin der Gründer, finanziell unter Druck. Als dann noch in einem Weinkeller ein Skelett entdeckt wird, droht sie alles zu verlieren. Sie macht sich auf Spurensuche in die Vergangenheit...
Ein Jahrhundert zuvor: 1912 bauen die Schallers, Winzer aus Deutschland, ihr neues Leben in Kalifornien auf. Schnell sind die Brüder Wilhelm und Johann erfolgreich. Doch als klar wird, dass Wilhelms junge Frau Clara eigentlich Johann liebt, entzweien sich die Brüder in tödlichem Hass. Der Riss, der durch die Familie geht, wird das Schicksal dreier Generationen bestimmen.
Ein mitreißender Roman über einen schicksalhaften Familienzwist und die Liebe, die Versöhnung bringt.

New Discoveries for Inspiration

I've had fun creating characters from another time and place: Post WW II, Cairo Egypt, "Virgins of Paradise". Two thousand years ago to the land of the Anasazi Indians of Chaco Canyon, New Mexico with "Daughter of the Sun," and in "The Blessing Stone", I travelled all the way back to the beginninng of time! So it was with particular interest that I read that new discoveries have been made about Stonehenge. Archaeologists have made new discoveries about the orgins of the 25 cremated remains that were unearthered there. At least 10 of the humans weren't from the monument site. Possibly 140 miles away. Facts like this can get the writer's mind racing. Where were they from? Why were they making the trip to Stonehenge? What was the journey like? It would make a great story!
