Guest Post for Veterans/Remembrance Day

I have a guest post over at Historical Tapestry today in honor of Veterans Day (aka Remembrance Day). My post is about how my grandparents' lives influenced my love of WWII-era historical fiction. I do hope you'll hop over there and check it out ... and please post a comment!

Learn more about why we honor this special day: learn about Veterans Day, learn about Remembrance Day.


Today I am remembering one specific person: Joseph Tofinchio. He was my grandfather's best friend in WWII and was killed on the third day of fighting after D-Day. I found out that his grave in Normandy is being cared for by a local Frenchman, and that makes me very happy.

Here's to you, Joe.
