John and Marge

A retelling of Hansel and Gretel

by Katharina Gerlach

Once upon a time in a world where magic and technology collide with unexpected consequences…

When Marge and her father enter the town to sell charcoal, the young smith John falls for her immediately. However, beautiful girls vanish overnight in town, and he has no idea where Marge is staying. Can he find her despite the curfew before the kidnappers will?

What if the Brothers Grimm didn't notice that "Hänsel und Gretel" weren't siblings at all?

The book includes a bonus story and the original fairy tale.

DRM-free DRM is a form of coding than makes it impossible to legally use an eBook on other eReaders. Since I don't want to patronize my readers, I am not using DRM. This way, everyone who buys one of my eBooks can convert it into the format supported by his/her eReader.

About the Author

Katharina Gerlach was born in Germany in 1968. She and her three younger brothers grew up in the middle of a forest in the heart of the Luneburgian Heather. After romping through the forest with imagination as her guide, the tomboy learned to read and disappeared into magical adventures, past times or eerie fairytale woods.

She didn't stop at reading. During her training as a landscape gardener, she wrote her first novel, a manuscript full of a beginner's mistakes. Fortunately, she found books on Creative Writing and soon her stories improved. For a while, reality interfered with her writing but after finishing a degree in forestry and a PhD in Science she returned to her vocation. She likes to write Fantasy, Science Fiction and Historical Novels for all age groups.

At present, she is writing at her next project in a small house near Hildesheim, Germany, where she lives with her husband, three children and a dog.
