I am a native of Northwest Indiana growing up in Gary when it was a true melting pot of cultures. My three month stay in a village in Yugoslavia in the 1950s inspired me to write a fictionalized story full of facts which has been labeled a ‘mystery with history’ by a newspaper reviewer.
The books are about life in Croatia starting in 1892 to 1906 about the immigrants who come to Gary, IN. Book four starts in 1911 where the Dalmatian people settled in New Orleans.
The first 3 Destiny books have each won a Reader's Favorite award.
Destiny's Dowry, Destiny Denied, & Destiny's Dance.
I am now working on the 6th and last of the Destiny Series. My plan had been to only
write the Trilogy, but my readers are so fond of the characters and events, that I have been asked to continue.
In the past I wrote feature articles for a local newspaper.
I have given many talks and presentations of my actual Dowry brought from Croatia, throughout the US.
