“You can’t write in more than one genre.”
“You’ll have to write YA under a pseudonym.”

Fact is, times have changed. Publishing has changed: forever.
Anca’s Story has already made #1 in Children’s Historical fiction and European Biographical fiction on Amazon.com and stayed there for two months. It’s only not there now because we had to take it down and re-publish it and it lost its ranking . Here’s the new link for it on .com
It has 11 straight 5 ***** reviews on Amazon UK.
This is Young Adult fiction, but not as you know it.
“This is not easy reading, either in subject or style. Desforges takes us into a whole new writing style with this first-person telling of the last days of Auschwitz, and through the eyes of a twelve year old child.
Not since Anne Frank’s Diary has the Holocaust story been related in such powerful fashion. And so timely, as we approach the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. This book should be compulsory reading in schools and colleges.”
“I started reading this book 2 days ago, and have now finished, as I couldn’t put it down. What a powerful and breathtaking story, it keeps you hooked from the first page.”
“I cried reading it and still can’t get it out of my head 2 days after finishing it.”
Three young children smuggle themselves into Auschwitz in search for their parents.
If you’re looking for werewolves, vampires and faeries and paranormal fantasy, try somewhere else. The only wolf in this story is very real, and the only connection with vampires is the distant Transylvanian mountains in Romania, where this story begins.
If you’re looking for light-reading where they all live happily ever after then again, try somewhere else.
If you want serious, no-holds-barred literary fiction set against the background of real historic events then this is for you.
