The Story of Love and the Missing Lara is an old-fashioned love story about two people who kw they are in love but keep it to themselves. Taking place at a central Ohio college in the 1970's, the two main characters are both teachers. John Ambrose Fuzzy Fuzzrock is a teacher in the business department, often asked to help investigate mysteries because of his supposed psychic ability. Lara Gutwetter is a teacher of history. They gradually become very attracted to each other, and the built up love drives Lara to take drastic action that most would find unusual. Many would wear these emotions on their sleeve, but somehow Fuzzy and Lara kw what is in each other's heart--in many ways, it is the fire that keeps them together. Their story becomes entagled when Lara is found missing.
Leo Kiesewetter earned a Master's degree in Business Education and has completed postgraduate work in business. He spent twenty-nine years teaching in high school and college and doing administrative work. For fourteen of these years he was department chairperson of business at Illinois Central College in East Peoria, Illinois. Earlier, he was an accountant for a real estate developer and then owned his own real estate company. After high school, he served two years in the military. Kiesewetter's intent is to write clean, moral and ethical stories about love while incorporating elements of his own life into the stories and characters. The seemingly psychic ability of some of his characters is drawn from numerous instances in the author's own life of a sensing or feeling something just before it occurs. Although many locations in his writings are fictional, many are based on places he has been or where the reader might actually like to visit.
