I’m an American writer of Jewish and Romany decent. I write Historical Fiction and Historical Romance, most of which is set during the holocaust. Although I never discount the horrors of the time period, the main focus of my work is on ordinary people who prove to be strong heroic characters in unfathomable circumstances.

1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: Who was Jack the Ripper? Why did he commit such horrific murders? What drove him? And, why was the crime never solved? A student of History at Oxford explores the life of Jack the Ripper. However, neither he nor his girlfriend realize the dangerous journey of obsession he is about embark upon.

A short story for mystery lovers....
All My Love, Detrick (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: Set in Nazi occupied Europe, “All My Love, Detrick,” follows the lives of two families, one Jewish and one German. They are bound together forever by a deep friendship and a forbidden love. Excerpt: The desolation all around her touched a nerve, and she hurried to turn the corner. A soft voice whispered in her mind ‘hurry Leah, it’s not safe here.’ Her heart began to race. Sweat formed in her arm pits. Now there was no more houses only open field. Walking faster her heel hit a patch of ice. Stumbling and tripping she fell. Fortunately, she’d fallen to her left landing on a grassy surface. Nausea played havoc with her stomach as it accompanied the thumping of her heart in her eardrums. Something felt wrong. If you like Historical Saga’s, you’ll love “All My Love, Detrick.
From Nazi Germany to Cuba. A Story Of Love, A Voyage Of Deception (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 18, 2012 02:33PM
Description: "From Nazi Germany, to Cuba" takes place on the tragic voyage of the SS St. Louis. This was a ship that Hitler allowed to sail out of Germany carrying the souls of 926 Jewish passengers hoping to be allowed to migrate to Cuba instead of facing death in the concentration camps. The vessel sailed out of the port of Hamburg Germany in 1939, with a very high price demanded for passage. However, when the ship set out on it’s way to Havana Cuba, the travelers had no idea what was in store. This book is the story of love, of betrayal and jealousy…of the will to live and the sadistic hatred of a madman and those who followed him. But, it is also a tribute to the human spirit which is sometimes remarkably filled with hope, generosity, light and the greatest gift of all, love.

“Yes, you know what’s kind of strange? I never realized how good life was until it wasn’t any more.”
Roberta Kagan, You Are My Sunshine

“There are good Germans. There are bad Jews. I think it is best to look at each person as an individual and to not group people together because of their race or religion. If we start doing that, we might just find we are as bad as the Nazis, right?”
Roberta Kagan, A Flicker of Light

“When you do what you fear most, then you can do anything.”
Stephen Richards

“You are essentially who you create yourself to be and all that occurs in your life is the result of your own making.”
Stephen Richards, Think Your way to Success: Let Your Dreams Run Free

“The true measure of success is how many times you can bounce back from failure.”
Stephen Richards

“When you concentrate your energy purposely on the future possibility that you aspire to realize, your energy is passed on to it and makes it attracted to you with a force stronger than the one you directed towards it.”
Stephen Richards, Think Your way to Success: Let Your Dreams Run Free

“Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass - to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.”
