Boldwood Books August 2019 Releases and the story behind my story

They say, everybody has a story.

For me, it began a while ago when I wanted to write a Christmas story, but not just any story. Not every Christmas happens the way we want it and sometimes the not-so-great ones stick with us.

Which made me wonder if I was alone in my thinking. That remembering the poignant Christmases when something happened to upset our universe was just me. I knew I couldn’t be the only one who looked back every year and took time to remember that Christmas and at times, wished I could change things.

So I did.

I wrote about a woman who laments every year about a lost love at Christmas and finally, she can change it.

By going back in time…

#LeftHandersDay and my WW2 romance “Christmas Once Again”

I’m left-handed!

I’m left-handed.

It’s like living life looking through a mirror.

Everything is backward.

When I was a kid in ballet school, I got thrown out of the chorus because I always went right instead of left. I worked hard to get a solo gig so I wouldn’t run into anyone when I chasséd across the stage.

And I love Japan. They read from right to left and back to front (I was at the top of my Japanese language class since right to left is more natural to me).

Yes, it’s a pain, but I’ve learned to find the pot o’ gold in all this. Like a lot of left-handed people, I’m artistic. And I love to write. Create stories.

And therein lies the magic.

I walk through the looking glass every time I sit down to write and go off into a world only I can see. It can be funny, soulful, heart-wrenching, sad, but always romantic.

How about you? Any lefties out there?

My heroine in CHRISTMAS ONCE AGAIN finds out how important eating with your left hand is for an American spy in Nazi-held France when she receives a mysterious letter after the war…

#VinylRecordDay and my WW2 romance “Christmas Once Again”

When a soldier found some quiet time during World War 2 to read a letter from his girl back home, most likely he was humming his favorite tune . . . a romantic melody they danced to . . . fell in love to . . . and kissed under the moonlight to on his last furlough home.

Big bands ruled the radio waves, but vinyl records of those romantic tunes were played in USO canteens and community center dances and anywhere soldiers could find a piece of home overseas.

So on VINYL RECORD DAY I want to remember those tunes and the soldiers and their sweethearts. I’ve put together some favorites from my sheet music collection from World War 2.

And now for our quiz question. What was the number one tune on the charts in August 1943?

(hint: it’s one of the pieces of sheet music in my graphic)

NEWS!!! on my Boldwood Books debut CHRISTMAS ONCE AGAIN

Pub Date: October 10, 2019

I don’ t have a cover yet . . . but I can tell you that nylons play an important part in my story in Ch 1 — they were rationed during WW 2 . . . here’s a vintage RF photo I colorized of girls getting their legs painted since they couldn’t get nylons.

I’ll be posting vintage colorized photos. It’s quite a challenge to “paint” these old photos — but I wanted to open the door to WW 2 like opening the door to Oz and seeing how the folks on the home front did their best to win the war — in color.

Imagine daily life with a party telephone line or shoes being rationed…l’ll be taking you on a trip back in time with interesting b.g. stuff about life during WW 2 as I introduce you to the Arden family in Posey Creek, Pennsylvania.

CHRISTMAS ONCE AGAIN is a cozy, homey Christmas story in a place I know well — but also filled with the angst and longing of a determined woman who goes back to 1943 to save the man she loves from being betrayed during a mission in France…and then lost to her.

Stay tuned for more!
