Meet Mystery Novel Author Lynne Kennedy--Read About Her Books That Blend the Past & the Present


I started reading Lynne's historical mystery novels, and now I'm hooked. I read TIME EXPOSURE after I learned that it's set during the Civil War, and as a huge Civil War/Lincoln buff, I read every book I can get on the subject, and even wrote one! I purchased several of her other books, then just last week, noticed she'd written a mystery set around the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, THE TRIANGLE MURDERS. On March 25, I sent Lynne a message about this great find, and she mentioned that day was exactly 107 years since that horrible fire where 146 people perished. Lynne is my guest today, so meet her and read about her books. About Lynne With a Masters’ Degree in Science and more tha...

Cavalry, tanks, and a German propaganda coup

charge-savoia-cavaleria
The cavalry charge at Krojanty on the first day of the Second World War is widely described as the last cavalry charge in modern warfare. The story goes that the Poles came across advancing German tanks and bravely charged them, pennants flying, sun shining on their swords and lances; an out of date and backward country taking on the mechanical might of a modern army. In The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich William L Shirer even described the charge as ‘Horses against tanks! The cavalryman’s long lance against the tank’s long canon! Brave and valiant and foolhardy though they were, the Poles were simply overwhelmed by the German onslaught’; it is an evocative image of the Polish upper class,...

Meet D.M. Burton and Read About her New Release RESCUING MARA'S FATHER, a Middle Grade Science Fiction Adventure


April and a Giveaway A note from D.M.: The beginning of April has always signaled Spring to me. It doesn’t matter what the calendar says. We could have snow on the ground, but when I turn the calendar page and see April, I know Spring has finally sprung. A bit of green pokes through the brown grass, the daffodils and tulips send their spears up through the cold ground. April also signaled Major League Baseball’s Opening Day. Not anymore. The season is starting in March now. But I still think about baseball as April arrives. One of my favorite reasons for living in the Midwest is the changing of seasons. Not every place on this planet has the distinct seasonal changes that we have. What about...
