Mrs. Dubeli goes to America—or does she? German/English/Confusion Galore
Good and well, but now what? There are lots of possible scenarios. I keep switching from one to the other. I keep changing things and then abandon the ideas again.
1) He was pushed, because he was a danger to someone? Whom? Why?
3) He had an affair, fathered a child, and someone killed him? The lover? The lover’s husband?
4) He was involved in some shady business and ???
Oh, what a crack of you know what! I toss the notebook aside and go switch on the espresso machine.
Born and raised in Switzerland, I have always had the desire to explore the world outside of my beautiful but tiny country. I traveled in Europe, China, Japan as well as South America. Now, I live and work as writer and translator in southern California. My interest in foreign cultures informs my work and my novels take place in several countries. I published a volume of poetry (The Path of Fire). Now, I write and publish contemporary fiction with a focus on family drama/love stories (The Family Portrait trilogy). My latest work includes an element of romantic suspense. Aside from writing and traveling, I am an avid reader and a lover of the arts, dark chocolate, and red wine.
