I recently published Lydia's Child and the most consistent comments I receive is that readers can't put it down. It is the biography of my grandmother and my mother during the upheavals of the Russian Revolution, Stalinist regime Word War 2 and post war Germany. It is a true story of the determination of ordinary people performing extraordinary things to protect their families and survive.

Please read the reviews on Amazon. I hope you will honor me by reading the story and also will find it a real page turner.

Hiding Behind the Cloth - Memoirs of an Innocent Child

Newly published book now available on Amazon.

Recent reader's review on FB page: "...The book, which Im almost done OUTSTANDING to say the least!!!!!"

This book is an eye-opener that everyone should read. It is a book of courage and determination, written on behalf of all the children in this world that have been and still are being abused.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness month. The Huffington Post has run a blog adapted from my book ' One Voice Raised: A Triumph Over Rape'.
(written by Jennifer Wheatley-Wolf and Chief Investigator David Cordle)

>>>I never saw the face of the man who raped me on August 21, 1988. It would take 20 years for technology to catch up with the evidence collected and make it possible to finally solve this crime. On January 13, 2010, I saw him for the first time...<<

Try Miles from Home by Colleen Lanier. It is a true story about a woman who helps her life long friend and recent ex-boyfriend (same guy) move his parents from Wisconsin to Washington. The dad is dying of cancer and the mom has Alzheimer's and doesn't know who they are. The father starts to die during their drive and I couldn't stop reading it because I had to know what would happen next. The author is a nurse and is trying to move on after being rejected by her best friend/boyfriend for a reason that is so very sad. I don't know anyone who would do what she did, and I don't think many peple would be in any way prepared for the things these two friends went through. It really makes you think. For a first time author it is exceptional writing.

I recommend Sonia's Song, by Sonia Korn-Grimani. I couldn't put it down, neither could friends that I've shared it with. It's an amazing story, about a girl who grows up in 1930s Germany and her life during the war. On top of being a thrilling and enchanting story, it's a beautiful piece of writing. I wouldn't be surprised it this story were made into a movie someday. Sonia's Song

You would also love reading Lydia's Child which also deals with the same historical period.

WINTER JOURNAL, Paul Auster which was given to me at MAIN STREET BOOKS, Minot North Dakota is a wonderful memoir that will speak to me for a long time..Think it was mostly the story of his life growing up in the same time that I did here in United States that made it a real page turner. Maybe his manner of looking forward to the end of an ordinarly life, lived by an ordinary person that grabbed my attention.

If you are a son or daughter of a German war-bride (WWII) you would love my memoir, The Little Girl That Could. It tells of the struggles to survive not only the air raids, but the trip to the U.S. and the ensuing interracial marriage.
Friends have told me that they couldn't put the book down even though they already knew the ending: My happy life in California!

I recently finished reading this amazingly heartbreaking yet inspirational true story called "Finding Gloria" by Marianne Curtis. I highly recommend this survival story by an author who survived child abuse, rape, mental illness, depression, divorce and single parenting. Once I started reading, i couldnt put it down!!!

This is a story about a man. A man who felt he had developed a potentially life-threatening sickness, only to be told "you're fine". This is a story about this man's struggle to deal with and overcome this all-too-common medical drama. Poked and Prodded- A Humorous Medical Memoir
