The idea for Songbird was born when an editor at Summerside asked if I’d be interested in writing a retro, historical novel. The first idea that popped into my mind was a story I’ve been wanting to write for a while about USO singers. Ever since I started researching WWII I wanted to write about the entertainers who risked their lives to bring a little joy to the soldiers. I knew I wanted it to be in Germany after the end of the war.
Here’s the synopsis: The year is 1945. The war is over and 21-year-old Betty Lake has been invited to Europe to sing in a USO tour for American soldiers who now occupy Hitler’s Germany. The first nights performance is a hit. Betty becomes enthralled with the applause, the former Nazi-held mansion they’re housed in and the attention of Frank Witt, the US Army Signal Corp Photographer. Yet the next night this songbird is ready to fly the coop when Betty’s dear friend, Kat, turns up missing.
Betty soon realizes Franks photographs could be the key to finding Kat. Betty and Frank team up against post-war Nazi influences and the two lovebirds’ hearts may find the answers…in each other.
But will they have a chance for their romance to sing? The truth will be revealed under a German moon.
