I've never written a mystery before, so this is an opportunity to use ingenuity in a new way. Also working on the sequel to With Each New Dawn, deep in the heart of Southern France, 1944.(less)

I went to Algona, about 2 hours from where we live, and spoke with locals who still have childhood memories of the POW camp. The veterans in town have created a museum with plenty of opportunities for
research, so I spent an afternoon there poring over newspaper articles, which led me to the local library. There, I found a book about the camp with special emphasis on following the Geneva Convention. and THEN about a year later, I discovered a book about many POW camps, written by an Iowa author, and learned even more about the overall process. I enjoyed the search for answers. Thanks for asking. (less)

“Home is where one starts from. As we grow older
The world becomes stranger, the pattern more complicated
Of dead and living. Not the intense moment
Isolated, with no before and after,
But a lifetime burning in every moment
And not the lifetime of one man only
But of old stones that cannot be deciphered.
There is a time for the evening under starlight,
A time for the evening under lamplight
(The evening with the photograph album).
Love is most nearly itself
When here and now cease to matter.
Old men ought to be explorers
Here or there does not matter
We must be still and still moving
Into another intensity
For a further union, a deeper communion
Through the dark cold and the empty desolation,
The wave cry, the wind cry, the vast waters
Of the petrel and the porpoise. In my end is my beginning.”
T.S. Eliot
