    Been avidly following your WWII posts since shortly after we met at the 2016 Mt Hermon writers conference, but this is my first visit to your blog. Thanks for all the interesting info you have shared. You reviewed my proposed book outline and early pages back then. I’m have been plugging along slowly since then, having now completed a much broader and deeper revision of my outline, which will include some military action with characters inspired by actual historical Christians and have started a revised first draft. I am happy for your continued and growing success and hope to experience some of my own in the not too distant future.
