writerchristophfischer

I’ve spent another week with festival work and have neglected my own marketing. So I’m all the more grateful to have found this latest in depth review of my medical thriller “The Healer” on Amazon:

A while back Rob Goldstein offered to do some 1920s images for me, when one of my tales reminded him of stories his grandmother told him.  He mentioned a song his grandmother sang to him called “Don’t Bring Lulu.”  Right away I wanted to do a story related to it.
