Hi! I'm Cindy. I just finished writing a biography based upon the actual hand-written journal of 14 year old, Gertrude Kerschner, from Kleinzell, Austria, who in 1941 was in Landjahr Lager in Seidorf. I entitled the book "Through Innocent Eyes."

Have you written a book or do you want to write a book?

"Through Innocent Eyes - The Chosen Girls of the Hitler Youth" is now available on, Barnes & Nobel, or National Socialistic upbringing in the League of German Girls used paramilitary like disciplinary measures to build their loyalty and moral character. Coupled with neo-pagan rituals, songs, and folklore, "Through Innocent Eyes" captures the self-actualization of 10 year old Gertrude as she progresses from childhood and living in poverty to adolescences and becoming 'one' with her country. By age 14, Gertrude is chosen for CountryService Camp. Here, she will receive the very best rural education, for the Reich only wants the healthiest and strongest girls. In 1941, there are 26,000 girls in Landjahr, and Gertrude is one of them.

Have you published anything anywhere?

For 10 years I was in music publishing industry. handling the copyrights, licensing and administration for our songwriters and affiliated publishers. Plus 7 years video/television producing background including camera, editing, pre and post production, script-writing, and researching.

Are you writing fiction or non-fiction?

Non-fiction - I consider myself on this book to be an cultural anthropologist. Extensively studied the cognitive, social-emotional, behavioral and psychological development of the girls to develop their moral character.

Are you in marketing, a literary agent or a publisher?

For the past year, I have been diligently marketing and promotion my book. I have learned so much! As a published author, it is very important that you learn how to market and promote your book.
