About the Author

Dorothe D. Kress grew up in East Germany. After completing her studies in education, she lived and worked as a teacher near Dresden, Saxony for more than 20 years. In 1989 she emigrated to the United States, where she continued to teach. She has been an author since 2003 and lives in Northern California. Her writing styles include memoirs, short stories, fiction and travel memoirs.

In addition to writing stories, Dorothe is often seen with her camera, a hobby she shares with her husband.

She is a passionate gardener and an active swimmer. She often cycles around her community with her husband. They are enthusiastic hikers both in the United States and in Europe. 


Of course, writing is still her favorite activity and more books are planned.
