My first publication, the story Road Girl, is now available in a bilingual edition (English + German) at Amazon's Kindle Shop. It can be purchased on my Shop Page. Here is the description:
California, 1962. Juni Shimata is nine years old. Marilyn Monroe just died, the Cubans and the Russians are coming. A topsy-turvy world of glamor, hypocrisy, and rules. But the bogies threatening little Juni are much closer to home. Divorce, racial discrimination, abuse. Bright-minded Juni is just becoming aware of life and struggling to fit two and two together. In a series of tableaux, like random reels of old home movies found in the attic, Road Girl shows how the pintsized protagonist uses her fantasy to cope with a world that isn't ready to make room for her.
