Tag Archives: Houston-Leipzig Sister City partnership


Welcome to my blog!

I am a member of the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW).

My latest post is the third from my October trip to Leipzig, Germany highlighting the 25th anniversary of the Houston-Leipzig Sister City Partnership. Earlier ones describe my thoughts about this year’s anniversary of the 1989 Peaceful Revolution ending Communism.

My busy summer traveling included a New England cruise with American Cruise Lines, Cleveland and the Lake Erie Islands, and Barbados and Antigua. I’ll be adding posts on these locations at some point.

My novel of international intrigue, Warming Up to Murder, is available as an ebook, and in Kindle and Nook formats.  It’s about a TV reporter who finds himself chasing the “big story” spanning two continents.  See the links below.
