Historical fiction/mystery

“The year is 1662. Alpine village hangman Jakob Kuisl receives a letter from his sister calling him to the imperial city of Regensburg, where a gruesome sight awaits him: her throat has been slit. Arrested and framed for the murder, Kuisl faces first-hand the torture he’s administered himself for years.

Jakob’s daughter, Magdalena, and a young medicus named Simon hasten to his aid. With the help of an underground network of beggars, a beer-brewing monk, and an Italian playboy, they discover that behind the false accusation is a plan that will endanger the entire German Empire.” Bolt – The Beggar King

This is the third installment in a series of books written under the moniker of  The Hangman’s Daughter. I’ve read and reviewed the first two here and here – if you’re interested.

Born in 1970 in Munchen, Germany, Potzsch writes what he knows, and he knows the landscape and people of Bavaria. He lives in Munich with his family, and is a descendant of a line of well-known Bavarian executioners. In his Hangman’s Daughter books, he writes about Johann Jakob Kuisl (Potzsch’s great-great grandfather) the Hangman who lived during the 1600s in a small region of Bavaria, Schongau, near the Alps.

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
