Sepp’s Epic Perils & Pitfalls of an International Hotel & Restaurant Professional takes us on a journey from the Sudeten Mountains to the West German American Zone, and provides a window into Sepp growing up in a 1950-60 Frankenland, before getting his professional education in the International Hotel & Restaurant Industry in Hamburg during the 1960s. Here he works and earns a living, while residing in the attic of  the restaurants. Sepp develops a strong liking for alcohol and sex.


Watching 'high society,' he witnesses how money plays a big role. The ones who have ample cash enjoy understating, while those who don’t have it, overstate by acting like being rich.


Sepp spends many years in the Hansestadt before his further travels and a new job in Andalusia. And from here Sepp immigrates to South Africa. After working at the Indian Ocean’s shore he emigrates from Africa to the United States starting out in Kansas City and finally making his home among the Redwoods along the Pacific Ocean front of California.

Book 5

Sepp  America and the West

It is all about Sepp, hardworking, risk taking and living what he considers the good life in California. He believes in the power of money, because without really doing much, except risking jail or prison, by bending some rules, and being at the right time at the right place, he has money coming his way wherever he goes. Sepp forms a California Corporation, and is investing in properties. How long will the 'lucky-streaks' last?







Book 6

Sepp is surviving yet another meeting with ‘the end of life as he understands it’ with the help of his ‘Guardian Angel.’ He works hard but struggles as he deals with the ruin of relationships, bank accounts, and possessions. After several attempts to get a grip on life, he realizes that he has no control and therefore gives up to win. When everything is going Sepp’s way, and a good friend needs a favor, Sepp agrees to skipper the 72foot MY-Seefahrt down south to Puerto Vallarta. Coming back to California Sepp has to start over, and he does.







Book 7

Sepp  Home

Sepp, Home builds on books#1 through #6. Will Sepp ever find out the truth about Walter van Russbourg, his biological father, or maybe not?


Here we get another good look at Sepp, who was born in Northern Bavaria. He grew up in the American Zone of West Germany.  Sepp’s dream was to live in America, ever since the days he learned to read. His favorite books were Wild West stories, about America, Cowboys and Indians. Sepp, since youth reading every Karl May book, had always attempted to fit in. Upon arrival in California he feels at home, its his kind of a life.


Sepp’s 'fantastic journey' started in Bavaria. He moved to the Hansestadt to learn a trade, and then to Andalusia to have a well-paying job. When circumstances made him leave Spain, Sepp took a gamble. Fully aware  of his abilities,  and willing to work hard, Sepp looked for and found work in South Africa. When a fortune teller, Madam Rosalie, told him about his travels to the West Coast of America, and much more. Sepp was somewhat excited, but in disbelief until it happened.  


Now in Sepp, Home  Sepp learns from his lessons, realizing the insanity of his actions and as he stops fighting and gives up, he wins, and finds his place in life. But what happens when Sepp finds out the truth about his 'biological father?'
