Dorothe D. Kress was born and raised behind the Iron Curtain in East Germany. Following a degree in education, she worked as a teacher for more than 20 years. After she applied for marriage to an American citizen, she had to endure harrowing experiences with the East German Secret Police, which became the topic of some of her books.
She gained permission to emigrate to the United States in 1989, where she continued to teach. She ended her teaching career in 2003 and became a full-time writer. She has published three memoirs in German, all available at Amazon.com, and short stories in English.
Her first novel, THE RISK: LOVE BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN, has been published in February 2022.
