Doris Dumrauf grew up in the West German state of Rheinland-Pfalz, a region with a huge concentration of U.S. military bases. Her childhood experiences, combined with her long employment on a U.S. air base and a love of history, became the inspiration for her novel "Oktober Heat." After moving to the United States in 1995, Doris published numerous articles in magazines and newspapers. Her second novel "Shiloh Valley" follows three German immigrants from a failed revolution to the battlefields of the U.S. Civil War.
Doris is also an award-winning public speaker and nature photographer. She has published the following picture books:

Looking Back on 2020 – Part 2





I got a new passport in January, hoping to see my family and friends in the Old Country after an absence of three years. It turned out to be the most unnecessary expense of the year.
