In the early 60s, Maria and Lucius live through an excruciating year in Munich.

Since Maria was small she has suffered from a severe form of homesickness for a country she has never seen. And now when the old dream of living in America is finally becoming reality, a clique of GIs and their wives set out to teach her and Lucius that they can never be anything but second class citizens in it. It's not a lesson they're willing to learn.

Kris Heywood was born near Lake Constance and grew up around Munich. After spending many years in Southern California, she craved moody skies and four seasons and moved to the Pacific Northwest, where she has occupied various mountain cabins, along with uncountable cats, dogs, rabbits, and guinea pigs. For a long time she took in strays, but recently she has allowed the pet population to shrink by attrition. These days she lives in town along with two very smart German shepherds.

She is a confirmed novel writer and believes that good fiction must, first and foremost, be distilled truth. Kris has produced four books, which are all available as e-books and print books. She is currently working on her fifth and is having lots of fun in the process.

Kris is passionate about long, brisk walks, especially through the woods. She also loves yoga, animals of all kinds, literary fiction, good theater, foreign and Indie films, and spending time at her laptop.
