Thank you for your question. I've always been interested in WWII history, but the research for these particular series I started doing around February 2015 and started working on the first book in the end of May I believe. Right now the third one is being edited and I'm expecting to have it released at the beginning of December, so it took me about 6 months to finish three books:)(less)

Hi Mary! Aww, I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed all of my books! Thank you so, so much for reading them - I really appreciate it!
Yes, Book 3 in The Indigo Rebels series is definitely coming! I have another project (also a WWII novel which will be set on the Eastern Front) which will be released sometime in January, and right after that, I'll immediately start working on the last book in the French Resistance series.
Thank you so much again for your question and for your kind words! You made my day today!:)

“Six month of sitting home, six month of doing absolutely nothing but watching TV, going out, sleeping, getting drunk and sleeping again. Oh no, wait, I was busy with something, I was doing some renovations in my new apartment. Which legally became mine only a month ago. Yep, that's what all my life has been about, spontaneous decisions and living in the moment. Because right now technically I'm a 25-year-old illegal immigrant from Russia, four years in New York, no papers, no work authorization, no work itself. Only a crazy life filled with restaurants, shops, beauty salons, clubs and restaurants again. How is it all possible? Very simple. I used to be a stripper.”
Ellie Midwood, The New York Doll

“Today they’re ordering you to marry, tomorrow they’ll hand you a machine gun and order you to start shooting people randomly, how about that?”
Ellie Midwood, The Austrian: A War Criminal's Story

“It was so easy to decide their fate, when they were nothing more than numbers on the sheets, presented to us for a signature by our adjutants. Now they were real people, with broken lives, torn families, and memories which would haunt them for the rest of their lives.”
Ellie Midwood, The Austrian: A War Criminal's Story

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“For a month already I was carrying on my affair with him, the whole month behind the closed doors of his office with hot wet kisses, with top secret papers scattered on the floor thrown off the table in haste, Georg rolling his eyes at yet another cancelled meeting and the order not to disturb the Chief of the RSHA, winks and hidden smiles through the half opened door, and the two of us smelling of each other’s perfume. And with every day I was sinking deeper and deeper in that swamp, and didn’t even try to grab the ground that was right next to me. I was disgusted with myself like an alcoholic who wakes up in a pile of dirt, but crawls right back to the pub to fill himself again with the poisonous liquor slowly killing him with every new sip.”
Ellie Midwood, The Girl from Berlin: Gruppenführer's Mistress

Alison Brodie I recommend "After the Fire, a still small voice" by Evie Wyld. Also "Back Roads" by Tawni O'Dell (which I've just discovered is being made into a movie).
