Published: The year 2014 saw the publishing of Eddie Schroter's biography From Glashuette to Victoria as an ebook and print book. It tells the gripping story of Eddie's youth in Germany during World War II, his struggle as a prisoner of war, and follows him as he left the ruins of Europe behind to immigrate to Canada and build a new future.

Christel Bodenbender spent most of her youth in Germany and came to Canada as part of her English studies. Here she obtained her Master's in Linguistics and rekindled her passion for writing. Since then she has written a selection of short stories and books.

Most of her current writing focus is Cosmic Destiny, a science fiction story that spans several books. The prequel, Encounter, is being prepared for release on Amazon.

In addition to writing, Christel has created a host of digital images, like the header graphic of this site. Some of her artwork can be seen on her art space Website Christel's Art and Web space.
