I know what you mean, we're on our way to Texas and we've fought closed roads this morning, endless snow seemingly but actually made a couple hundred miles. I love my wool coat. Here's hoping you survive!
Thank you Allan. My grandmother came from Barengrund along
with several other siblings and of course her parents Adolf and
Marie Lousie Krause Ansorge.
The ship records show the family as Prussian's. I grew up hearing
that we came from Sileasea (spelling?). The rest of our family stayed
behind in Germany. I know no other family other than my Great Grandparents' offspring.
It appears to me that we have a stong thread of literary talent that
runs through this family ( not including myself). I'm very proud of
my Ansorge heritage.
If I could find some one to build it my friend Claire in England will maintain and update it for me. All this is new to me. I am a first time author and I am just getting the hang of promoting my work.
Shame on them, but thank you *so* much for trying. In the UK, I'm published by Constable & Robinson. In the US, Into the Shadows, was published by Carroll & Graf (ISBN 9780786719631). The 2nd, A Darker Side, will be published in UK and US in May.
Hi, Allan: needless to say, Nelson DeMille is a very, very nice man. All I can do is try to live up to the blurb. I hope you'll take a peek at my work. I think Chalice's a blast, and hope you will too. Sorry for the late reply; been traveling for business. Looking forward to lots of great chatter.
How nice of you to write, Allan! Thanks for the kind words. I sort of felt like I was on a runaway train... there was so much to say and not enough time to say it. So I'm glad it made sense to you. Happy to see you here as well!
