Steel Valley – coming of age in the industrial hey-day.

Today I am hosting a stop on Jerry Madden’s tour with The Coffee Pot Book Club. His book, Steel Valley, is set in the 1960s in Ohio which qualifies it as historical fiction – you know, at least fifty years in teh past. Gulp. I am apparently fast becoming a relic. . . I find […]

Today, I am happy to host Milana Marsenich and her book, Beautiful Ghost, as part of her Coffee Pot Book Club tour.  Milana’s novel is set in 1918, just as the dreaded Spanish Flu starts spreading – and I imagine that present-day audiences are better equipped to understand the reactions to this influenza after our

Any history geek will tell you that there are some subjects that can really get the debate going, heated arguments for and against flying back and forth.

Celebrating good times – a party for a fab lady AND her books!

Heck, I don’t even wear hats–primarily because I
