As a lawyer, I am a professional writer but have ventured into fiction. I am loving the journey. My book is set in 1848 Prague during the European revolutions. Maria Plocek’s fiancé is about to take her away from her unloving, spiteful mother for a charmed life of a doctor’s wife when she meets the student leader of the Prague rebellion and falls in love. With her life plan turned upside down, it is the perfect situation to to tell a story of people, love, duplicity, betrayal and all the amazing details of politics and domesticity in those times.
