Editorial Reviews


"I first became aware of this novel when it was an AmazonBreakthrough Novel Award semi-finalist. I read it again more recently. As a former columnist for Stars and Stripes in Europe AND an Air Forcewife of 30 years, I love Mrs.Lieutenant."

-- Bonnie Latino,  co-author of "Your Gift to Me"

From the Author

The novel MRS. LIEUTENANT took 38 years to bepublished.

The novel's saga started when I was a new Mrs.Lieutenant in May 1970 during the Vietnam War and right after the Kent Stateshootings.  The experience introduced meto the world of army wives that I would never have otherwise known.

About 20 years later and after I had started the LosAngeles Chapter of the national organization Sisters in Crime, I told the storyof my military spouse experience to two female movie producers.  They were intrigued and optioned the storyfor a movie.

They eventually told me that Hollywood people didnot "get" the movie concept and that I would have to first write a book.  By the time I wrote the first draft of thenovel the producers had moved on.

For another 20 years or so I wrote and rewrote thenovel.  (It had to be a novel rather thana nonfiction book to protect the people whose stories I wanted to tell.)  I created fictional characters and somefictional events for a more compelling story.

Many agents and publishers over the years turned thenovel down.  But I felt strongly thatthere was a place for a novel about this slice of women's social history at thebeginning of the women's movement in the United States.

When POD (print on demand) self-publishing became anoption, I decided to self-publish MRS. LIEUTENANT.  At the same time I entered it in the 2008Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition.When the book was named a semifinalist of this competition, I feltvindicated for my 38-year belief in sharing this story.

At the same time I stumbled into blogging and socialmedia for book marketing.  From thatpoint on I dove into learning as much as possible about this brave new onlineworld, and I co-founded an online marketing company with my younger daughterYael K. Miller.

Now ebooks have opened up the self-publishing worldeven more -- and I'm engaged in publishing more fiction and nonfiction books via Kindle Direct Publishing.
