One of the greatest things about blogging is meeting interesting people all over the world. I first encountered Angelika Schwarz in Jan. 2015, when she commented on the post “Home Again After 41 Years”, about returning to my birthplace in Germany. She said:
Hi Debbie, I had fun browsing around your blog. We have a few things in common. I was born in Germany, my parents moved to the US when I was a baby, and now I’m back in Germany. You can read about that in my blog, under About Me. ? I’m looking forward to getting to know you better. Waving to you from across the pond. Angelika
Thus, an online friendship was born. At that time, Angelika was readying her first novel for publication and it was released last fall. Since then, she has published two more books in quick succession. More about those in a minute, but first, let’s hear from the author, herself:
Hello, dear Reader. Thanks for dropping by. During the summer and autumn months, I can be found camping with my husband somewhere on the European continent in our caravan – Moby Dick. That’s when I hike or bike, take photographs and gather ideas and inspirations for my upcoming novels. When the sun begins to set, I build a little writing nest in our home on wheels, sip ice tea (or maybe something stronger), put my tired feet up, and let my fingers do the walking, (or flying) over my trusty laptop’s keyboard. I write the kind of books I love to read. The kind that grabs you right from the start and keeps you captivated and entertained to the very end.
My first book, “Wings on her Heels”, came to life 15 years ago, with many pauses in between. That was a time when I deeply missed America, friends and family. Leaving a home country is similar to uprooting a grown tree. I thought writing about my homeland might ease my heartache; thus, the first chapter stems from my own life. It includes my experiences as a stewardess, working as a personnel counselor and accepting a temporary job in Germany. But that’s pretty much where the similarities end. (Thank goodness… you’ll see why!) After the first chapter, my fantasy took over, which isn’t — in my case — unusual. I’ve always been known as the story telling lady. Up to now I’ve been active behind the scenes, whether it was writing school plays, comedy skits or entertaining children with fantasy tales.
Angelika was kind enough to send me a paperback copy of “WINGS ON HER HEELS” and I was hooked from the first paragraph. If you’re interested in romantic suspense thrillers, you will love this book!

Not one to rest on her laurels, Angelika soon published two volumes of short stories and poems,
“Brighten a Senior’s Day”, I and II.
“Delightful books to read or be read to for our senior family and friends. These light-hearted, uplifting – easy to read- collections of rhythmic poems and entertaining short stories will surely bring a smile to your dear ones. The suggested topics for discussion following each short story, encourage the readers to share their own stories as well.”
What a wonderful and entertaining idea! Could be a real mood lifter.
Angelika’s books are all available from Amazon worldwide, in paperback and ebook versions.

I asked Angelika what future literary delights she was planning to publish. Her response:
What future literary delights are you planning to publish? Heh heh… love your choice of words. I started a novel about a refugee child. It will be a book full of emotions, …. and suspense. I’m on the 11th chapter. I guarantee – there will be surprises.
Angelika would be happy to chat with you and answer any questions.
Looking forward to your comments!
