I am currently traveling in the Old Country, specifically in my grandparents’ hometown of Liberec in the Czech Republic, gathering photos to go along with my book, Jumping Over Shadows, the story of how the same “impossible” German-Jewish love happened twice in my family, once to fail during the Nazi times in this very town, and once to succeed in my own life.

And while I am wandering around here with my sister, things are moving along with the book, so much so that I received the first view of the laid-out pages last night, the very day I am rummaging around in the Old World, that lives on, at least a little bit, in the book. Strikes me as good karma, right?

More to come, soon!
