For as long as I can remember I’ve dreamed of being an author, the same way some little kids dream of being ballerinas or Major Leaguers. Well, I don’t pirouette, and I sure can’t hit a ball, but from time to time I do come up with a pretty good metaphor.

I’m pretty sure my love of storytelling began one summer night years ago, as I sat by a camp bonfire and listened to a counselor tell a ghost story, The Monkey’s Paw, which made my heart pound and my imagination run wild. The memory still makes me shiver.

Now, I’m thrilled to share my first book with the world. It's a true crime with echoes of the Holocaust, called THE CRATE: A Story of War, a Murder and Justice.

I'd love to hear from you!

“the large group of Haftlings ended up in a factory in Bochum, Germany,”
Deborah Vadas Levison, THE CRATE: A Story Of War, A Murder, And Justice

“the factory warden had little choice but to send the bodies to the local cemetery to be disposed of during that period. Six Haftlings died within that time frame. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of victims of Nazi atrocities across Europe had been dumped into mass graves, but, according to what we read next, this local cemetery superintendent took it upon himself to do something. Something extraordinary. This cemetery superintendent – this good, decent man – took each of those six deceased Bochum factory workers and laid him in an individual, marked grave in the Wiemelhausen Jewish Cemetery.”

“Apparently Solarcaine, a topical anesthetic, is meant to be used only in small quantities. Peter’s inflamed skin had absorbed copious amounts of the drug and it had knocked him out.”
