Barbara,

That's great to hear about your family connection. I'd be proud, too. He was an amazing man and deserves a lot more attention than he has received.

I was home in Alton, Illinois just a few weeks ago and went by to visit his memorial. I always try to drive by that and Robert Wadlow's statue when I'm back there.

I hope your son & grandson enjoy the book, too. If you're a Pinterest person and history buff, I also have a board on Lovejoy that I need to keep finding good pins to add: https://www.pinterest.com/jjpseattle/...

Thanks!

September 2019 News

Just a quick note that I'm still writing, reading and connecting with other readers/writers. Some of this through Goodreads but also through Facebook and various writing groups.

I've released an updated version of my children's biography on Robert Wadlow: The Unique Life of the Boy Who Became the World's Tallest Man. The version with the blue cover is the older version, so be sure to check out the Read more of this blog post »

Nina Kosterina: A Young Communist in Stalinist Russia (Biographies & Memoirs)
2 chapters   —   updated Jan 04, 2010 09:38AM
Description: A young adult biography available in eBook formats Nina Kosterina was born in a revolutionary camp as the Bolsheviks took over Russia in 1920s. She beat the odds of survival during the harsh early years and emerged in the 1930s as a young Communist woman in love with her country, her family, her city, her friends, politics, art and life. Even when Joseph Stalin’s regime tore apart her family and imprisoned her father, she remained loyal to her country and joined an elite group of young women turned guerilla soldiers when the Germans invaded Russia in 1941. Nina perished in a Nazi ambush behind enemy lines. After the war, her family found her diary hidden in a wardrobe. Years later, the diary was released as a book and became an international bestseller. Written from ages 15 to 20, the diary revealed a teenager transforming into an adult juxtaposed against one of the most dangerous and tumultuous periods in world history. Nina’s biography opens a window into 1920s and 1930s Russia through the eyes of someone who considered herself just an “ordinary girl.”
