So, I had a number of people ask to hear about what life in Germany was like, so I thought I’d briefly talk about it. My husband (who is half-French, half-German) and I lived there from 2009 to 2012. We were actually in Bayern (a.k.a. Bavaria) right beside the borders with Austria and Switzerland. That […]
5 out of 5 stars. My mind was literally blown after finishing this (read my Goodreads review if you don’t believe me). All I was really capable of doing was gaping at the computer screen and desperately wishing the sequel, Sapphire Blue, was available now. Or that my German skills were better so I could […]
As you might have gathered from the blog title and image, I visited a zeppelin museum over the weekend. But not just any zeppelin museum–THE zeppelin museum. You see, only a hop, skip, and a jump from where I live in Deutschland is Friedrichshafen, the birthplace of the zeppelin. And, because this monstrous flying machine […]
Wonderful news, everyone!! I’ve been itching to tell you all for a while now. A few weeks ago, Something Strange and Deadly and its two sequels SOLD to… Wait for it… Wait for it… (You can probably guess by the giant FLAG right there. If not, now’s your chance to learn something new.) And the […]
Oh no, Gumshoe! That sneaky Susan Sandeigo has struck again, and this time she’s stolen one of the most important cultural artifacts in the world!

Seriously, everywhere. They’re like Waffle Houses in the southern US or Tim Horton’s in Canada (sans the fast food, of […]

It’s in Frankfurt, a cool 4 hours away from me (but no, I won’t be going; apparently, there’s not much to see for aspiring writers). This book fair is where publishers and multimedia companies from around the globe get together to […]
And so the intrepid warrior returns from her foray into the jungles of Bavaria. What did she discover? Delicious Bier and lots of Spaß.
10 days to Christmas. I’m just gonna go ahead and apologize in advance for what I know will be a few weeks of sparse posting. Holidays, holidays with the husband’s family, holidays with the husband’s family who don’t speak English… You get the idea. It doesn’t help that the Muse and I seem to be […]
So, it’s Freitag here in Deutschland. Freitag = Free Day = Friday. Actually, most of the days of the week in German are strikingly similar to English. Zum Beispiel (For example): Montag = Monday Dienstag = Tuesday Mittwoch = Wednesday (Okay, so this one’s pretty different, but Mittwoch literally means mid-week–that makes sense, don’t you […]
