Welcome to my book blog! I’m excited to share about five years’ worth of research, interviewing, and writing with you! The Soldier, the Avatar, and the Holocaust is about my father and his WWII experience in Europe, but the story is told from the point of view of a 2017 teenage girl. Beth time-travels back to 1945 to accompany her 19-year-old great-grandfather through the last five months of the war.
I wrote this book because people are forgetting, or worse, denying, the Holocaust. It happened. Many of my family members were killed. I want people to read, and to keep the memory alive.
The book is not yet available. It will be on Amazon and Kindle by September 20th. But you can order your pre-publication book now on my website now. Order now and receive a signed book, a Reader’s Guide to the book, and free shipping. An order of five books gets you a complimentary sixth book, and there are special discounts for larger orders for your book club or school.
Please contact me if you’d like me to do a reading and a book-signing at your school or book club or for your organization. I’ve prepared a slide presentation to accompany the book that will help folks, specially young people, know and understand.
Each week I’ll post another blog that will contain historical information about the Holocaust and information about aspects of the book. You’re invited to add your own thoughts and reviews and comments about the book. Thanks for joining me on this journey.
