° Yellow Dragon °My husband discribed his childhood at the Traunsee, where he could see over the Lake to the Castle Orth. As a young girl, I had seen the movie "The Red Prince" (1954). Peter Pasetti plays the role of Archduke Johann Salvator of Habsburg Tuscany, the owner of Castle Orth. Johann, called his mother lovingly Giovanni dared to disagree with Kaiser Franz Josef. The tragic fate of the Archduke inspired. In July 1890, his schooner was lost in the South Atlantic. At the "El Escorial" in Spain, I discovered the image of a daughter of Queen Isabella II. This Princess “Maria Berenguela del Pilar” I chose the "bitch wife" of Johann Salvator and she became my "Novel mother" of Archduke Albert Salvator. In the book, not only this love ends tragically.

Yellow Dragon

A famous Austrian geologist was victim of Cannibals 1896. His grand-grandson is among my circle of acquaintances. This is base of another adventure in the book.
"Land of smiles" was the first movie in my life, which I remember. Starring were Marta Eggerth and Jan Kiepura. Watching this movie I shed bitter tears. The "real China" we visited first at the beginning of the 80s, because my husband negotiated with a member of the Politburo in Beijing. Doing some research I discovered, that during the Boxer Uprising in 1900 the Austrians had played a significant role.
That was sufficient material for the book "Yellow Dragon", but the novel leads also to Africa.
