Many friends of the French Orphan will be able to meet their favourite protagonists once again.

As the book is embedded into a genuine historical context it demands a lot of research to get it right. Interesting work, sometimes a bit tedious....

I can reveal that Armand will fall in love, once again, but he'll suffer....

A fascinating period!(less)
Michael Stolle you're the boss. You don't like a character, make him suffer :) or kick him out of the plot - so unlike real life.....

Kaysersberg

a new book in the making... finally

it's a new adventure and this time we travel to the Germanic Empire as the Cardinal Mazarin has set his eyes on the vast fortune of the Saint Paul family.

Armand will have to grow up and cope on his own - but how to avoid the trap of love?

I was encouraged by many comments to go on writing and publishing. Your wish is my command :)

Thanks to all of you! Read more of this blog post »
