In the future this section of my web pages will contain reviews of my published books. But for now, while Ila’s War is unpublished, you’ll get to read reviews of the book proposal. I’ve had the tremendous great fortune to meet and receive the assistance of several respected authors and World War II experts who have read the proposal. Some of these folks have also read early drafts of the book and offered excellent suggestions which I’ve incorporated into later drafts. Their praise for the proposal suggests that I’m on the right track. See what you think.
Cindy . . . This is compelling reading for me and I hope for prospective publishers.

I read the book proposal, and it looks awesome – it certainly is written in a very attractive way and should trigger a reader’s appetite!

Read a little bit of it already. Being from a Catholic family, the opening scene showing the bigoted behavior in that town towards Catholics makes my blood run cold. Very disturbing

[T]he first scene of this proposal . . . is juicy. great description and dialogue. . . . Your proposal and the scenes have stayed with me.
