Red, White and Blue Memories

The story of pioneering Hungarian-American activists from 1920 – 1970

Beginning with a trip to my grandfather’s ancestral home of S√°rospatak, Hungary in 2007 I have been on the hunt for more information about Carl Schwartz aka Kalman Marki. It has been, in some cases, like searching for six needles in six separate haystacks.

I am still sifting through thousands of pages of FBI and OSS files from the US National Archives, conducting interviews with people who knew the characters in my book and researching historical records.

Writer, Photographer

Over the last four decades I have had multiple careers. Usually one to pay the bills and another to feed my soul.

Finally, they have merged into what I have dreamed about: spending my days doing the things I love and learning new skills to supplement my abilities.

And I get to hang out with exciting, fun, beautiful, creative, intelligent, compassionate people like you.
