We Have Liftoff! ACCIDENTAL SAVIORS is launched!

May 6 was a very satisfying day for me personally. My “baby” the past 2.5 years, the research for and the writing of the many drafts of my second novel, Accidental Saviors, reached a milestone: it was published  by You Can’t Put It Down Books of Yardley, PA and then launched at a party at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Elkins Park.

Our son Luke served as faithful bookseller.


Barbara Lawson of St. John’s prepared

and served the delicious refreshments…

including wine.


Lector Cindy Raff read the first chapter

to whet people’s appetites

for the remainder of the novel.

I hadn’t realized I had written such

an exciting chapter one until I heard

Cindy’s dramatic reading.


                                                         I was proud to introduce my editor and publisher

                                                                                                Karen Hodges Miller. Where would I have been

without her expert guidance?



I had a chance to say a few words

about my aim of inspiring readers to

goodness by telling the story of

two “accidental saviors” of the lives

of hundreds of Jews during World War II.


I hope Accidental Saviors  provides many hours of

fascinating reading and  sparks conversations

like this one.
