A Galactic Time Was Had

A fun evening at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego Friday night. I talked about the forgotten women who played heroic roles undercover in WWII. Inspiring stories, surprising and at times devastating. Thanks to all who turned out! If you’re interested in this topic, see the category “Women Spies of the World Wars” in these posts.

“Women spies of World War II” will be my topic at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego on January 19. I’m excited to talk about what has become my favorite topic: the women who inspired me to write At the Table of Wolves, the first book in my Dark Talents trilogy. (Featuring the women shown below and more.)

Check it out here! Mysterious Galaxy is one of my very favorite bookstores, and I’m so happy to be there on Friday. For those of you who’ve inquired, my cat Winston has declined to accompany me since he will be napping, but my husband Tom will be there–I know, a poor substitute for Winston fans. . . So who was my cat named after? Yup!

The sequel, Serpent in the Heather, is out April 10, and the trilogy concludes with Nest of the Monarch, coming soon!
