I'll Let You Know When We Get There follows my travels around the globe during the changing times after World War II. Get either one or both, for yourself or a friend, for 10% off today.

Bad Toelz group on Facebook

For all who are interested, there is a Bad Toelz group now on Facebook. I've been enjoying catching up with old friends and former students.

Apparently I have an eBook...

If you look in Apple's iBookstore, you may see a new ebook version of my title I'll Let You Know When We Get There. (I self-published this book with Lulu, and they handled the logistics for the eBook.) I'm still feeling my way through all this, trying to figure out whether to do my other book there as well, and/or place one book or both with the Kindle or Nook stores. Any ideas? I welcome any comments or suggestions you may have about which places you prefer to shop for ebooks.

Now on Facebook!

This is a new thing for me, but I'm having fun connecting with people from the past, in my various travels and networks: the American School in Germany; Williamsburg, Va., where I lived for ten years; University of Michigan, and more.

I've made some changes in the text, and the book has a new cover, layout, and format. It hasn't gone through distribution channels yet, so for now it's available only through

Reader's Comments: L.A.

It isn't my style to use excessive praise — however, this is the most interesting, best written — (w/illustrations) — "Travel," "Auto-bio," historical piece of work I have ever read!! Your personal "side observations," in excellent descriptive prose, make it "Art"! You can be honestly proud of this piece of work. It is a legacy!
