“Amy Mason Doan creates a whole world and mood with her exquisitely crafted novel, Lady Sunshine. It’s replete with late-’70s nostalgia, and Doan masterfully renders the lives of musicians and those who are drawn to them, no matter the price. A delicious daydream of a book.”

EPISODE 1: The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose
M.J. Rose is my guest to discuss her new novel, The Last Tiara, a provocative and moving story of a young female architect in the 1940s who begins a journey to discovering her mother’s life during the fall of the Romanovs.
In this webinar, I present an in-depth look at the experiences of some of the real Red Cross Clubmobile Girls in Europe in December 1944. I talk about the events before, during and after Christmas 1944, including Glen Miller’s secret concerts and heartbreaking disappearance. Finally, I also share the more details about the Battle of the Bulge, including more details about the incredible true story of the Christmas Eve dinner between German and American soldiers in a Belgian family’s cabin in the woods.
I had the pleasure of joining this all-star historical fiction panel featuring bestselling authors Joy Jordan-Lake, Under a Gilded Moon; Fiona Davis, The Lions of Fifth Avenue; Ariel Lawhon, Code Name Hélène; and Lauren Willig, Band of Sisters. We discussed the history that isn’t taught to us in school–the forgotten people and events that inspire their hit novels.
Please join me on Thursday, October 8th at 7PM for my latest webinar. I’ll discuss the writing and creative life, my research process, as well as the business of publishing in a one-hour online event. I’ll also be reading the first few pages of The Secret Stealers, to be published in March.

My new book, The Secret Stealers, is coming and I can’t wait to tell you about it. No spoilers will be revealed, but I will share some of the fascinating history about the women of the Office of Strategic Services and the French Resistance during WWII.
