Book Census 2013

I hardly dare to tell you that I actually don’t know how many books I own. On the other hand, you might have noticed that by now. I know this sounds completely crazy. It is crazy. And I do hate it so I’m going to change this today – or at least I’m going to try …

R012-Der lange Ritt nach Hause

Review: Der lange Ritt nach Hause

Ja, es ist mal wieder ein Pferdebuch – allerdings eines, das mir wirklich viel bedeutet und das ich schon unzählige Male gelesen habe. Warum das so ist?

Interessanterweise heißt die Protagonistin im Original noch nicht einmal Cara sondern Carey . . .

It fits perfectly into Christmas time, so I thought I’d share it with you. I recommend reading it in German if possible, since this is the language I originally wrote it in …

CR001-Die Meisterin

Torturing Myself

There’s a situation familiar to every reader, a situation we all love to hate: waiting and waiting and waiting for the next novel in a series. Depending on a couple of factors, this time span can be perceived on a range from barely acceptable to unbearable torture …
