Introducing ....

So, you know how I've been hinting about my novella, Sweet Remembrance? Well, today I get to share some crazy exciting news ...

Once: Six Historically Inspired Fairytales

Six fairytales you thought you knew, set against a tapestry of historical backgrounds.

A lonely girl plots revenge in the shadow of a mountain. A stolen princess fumbles a century backward. A dwarfish man crafts brilliant automatons. A Polish Jew strikes matches against the Nazis. A dead girl haunts a crystal lake. A terrified princess searches a labyrinth. A rich collection of six historically inspired retellings, Once is a new generation of fairytales for those who thought they'd heard the tales in all their forms.

Featuring the novellas of Elisabeth Grace Foley, Rachel Heffington, J Grace Pennington, Emily Ann Putzke, Suzannah Rowntree, and Hayden Wand.

Coming December 2nd, 2016


(You're scratching your heads right now wondering which story is mine, right? Yeah, actually I'm pretty sure you nailed mine right away.)

I was so excited when Suzannah Rowntree and Elisabeth Grace Foley asked if I'd consider writing a retelling for their fairy tale boxset. Little old me alongside authors like Rowntree and Foley, Rachel Heffington, J. Grace Pennington, and Hayden Wand?!! I'm honored to be a part of this exciting adventure!

Robert Lopiano | Tail Gunner on a B-17

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to meet Robert Lopiano who served in the 548th Squadron, 385th Bomb Group from 1943-1944. He enlisted a week before his twentieth birthday and started out as a waist gunner on B-17s, then become a tail gunner. He flew 25 missions over France, Germany, and Holland. Out of the 100 men in his squadron, only 17 reached the mark of 25 missions.
