I love using primary sources for my research no matter what era. The further back in time I go, the more difficult it is to find diaries and memoirs, but I've found a few. I also look at newspapers, catalogs, and books written during the time period. For my WWII fiction, I often watch YouTube interviews conducted by universities and museums. I also watch documentaries.(less)

This is the first book by this author I’ve read. I enjoyed the story but am disappointed that the storyline didn’t finish at the end. I don’t care for “cliffhanger” books that force a reader to purchase the next book; I think it is possible to write ...more
