“A Cherry Blossom in Winter”
how different are you from other historical novelists? are most of your books
mostly fiction, meaning the characters and settings (locales)–what’s real?
with this book you really fascinated readers with the turn of the 20th century history
dealing with the opulence for the elite, militarism, anti-Semitism, expansion and the trans-Siberian
why did you pick the setting of the Japanese/Russian war (1905-06) as the real background for
this book?…so many of us still have a lot to learn about that conflict and its aftermath–an interesting
study of Russian and Japanese navies, battleships and admirals, among other fascinating highlights
of course, we’d like to know about the sequel, “A Blossom in the Ashes,” which takes place in the
Pacific, leading to World War II and Japan’s participation in that war…when will this novel hit the market?
And how long did it take you to write this one?
what about a movie for any of your books and are there any visual possibilities in the works?
where can our listeners buy your books?
