About the Author

Gerti's War: A Journal of Life Inside the Wehrmacht is Lois’ first non-fiction book although she has been an active storyteller for the last fifteen years. Lois’ life changed when she was visiting Gerti and extended family in Germany and a photo album fell out and onto her foot. That photograph showed Gerti’s father wearing a WWII German uniform with another German officer in a wagon. Lois casually asked her cousin, “What did you do in the war?” However, she was not prepared for Gerti’s answer. Gerti told Lois that she had been in the Hitler Youth and was fourteen when the war started. Lois literally dropped to her knees. The kindest woman she had ever known, couldn’t be a “Nazi”? Gerti’s War covers the years 1938-47 showing what life was like in Germany during the war and afterwards as taken from Gerti’s journals from the time and the stories she told.
Lois lives in California with the best dog in the world who happily sits at her feet while she writes. Occasionally she walks said dog, sculpts in marble, clay and stone; paints, cuts glass and works in fiber arts. Lois sees the world differently and pursues her love of a good story in novels and screenplays. She has previously self-published a children’s fairytale, Legend of Cinnamon Valley, under the pen name Lois Frazier. Lois has written two other books; and is a screenwriter with several screenplays, teleplays, and shorts. She also works with children teaching classes…
