A resident of Southern California, Randi is a widow, mother, horticulturist, teacher and now a writer.
Randi is a native of Toronto, Ontario, Canada who married into a Holocaust Survivor family.  

Randi’s father-in-law, Hirsch, was a teenaged deportee from Lodz, Poland who ended up as the third person named on Schindler’s List.  
His family had a treasured coin collection that they buried to keep out of Nazi hands and which was not recovered for over sixty-five years.

Part of the book is the story of the treasure hunt, which Randi and her husband, Mark, embarked upon after Mark related the story that his father had told him about the coins.  Mark only knew that the coins were buried somewhere in Poland.
Mark’s dad died in 1981, so it was no longer possible to ask him any details.  

Mark along with Randi started what ended up being a 20 year quest to discover when and where the family managed to bury the coins.  Additionally, the book is search for answers as to what happened to Hirsch and the rest of his family all of whom disappeared during the Holocaust.

Randi’s mother-in-law, Sally, was a survivor of several concentration camps, including Auschwitz, where she stood up to the Angel of Death, Dr. Josef Mengele and lived to tell the tale.  
She eventually ended up working as a cook in Dr. Mengele’s kitchen.
