Sparrenburg Castle

Sparrenburg Castle, situated in the Teutoburg Forest, towers 197 feet above Bielefeld, Germany. This castle provided the perfect backdrop for my parents and offered a spectacular view of Bielefeld for Silke and Horst in Love in Lederhosen!

So, let's begin at the beginning!
My father stood at the top of that castle over 65 years ago and called down to my mom to be. He claimed he would jump if she didn't agree to marry him. Romantic, huh? Well, she told him to go ahead and jump! Theirs was an epic love story to be shared in drips and drabs as we spend time together!

Although I'm now in the Sunshine State with a family of my own...there are shades of the old country still lurking in my soul. Love in Lederhosen was written right after I came back from a trip to see my family. My history always finds a way to be relived in my stories!

What special corner of the world whispers to you?

The Shallows

"...wandering the long narrow corridors of the stacks of books. Despite being surrounded by tens of thousands of books, I don't remember the feeling the anxiety that's symptomatic of what we today call information overload. There's something calming in the reticence of all those books, their willingness to wait years, decades even, for the right reader to come along and pull them from their appointed slots. Take your time, the books whispered to me in their dusty voices. We're not going anywhere."                The Shallows by Nicholas Carr

I've waited a long time for you dear reader!

Get your favorite beverage and snuggle in...let's get to know each other!

Luck and Love
