My current book-in-progress is not a biography - it's historical fiction set in dark, frozen, war-time Russia. It is a survival story.

Leningrad USSR, 1941. Yuri is thirteen, studying to be a professional artist. His goal in life is to become "world-famous artist Yuri Ivanovich Petrov," and he has his future mapped out. He has a scholarship to a prestigious art school, gold medals on his wall, and fame is just around the corner. But something else is just around the corner, something that will change Yuri's world forever.

Look for The Boy Who Drew HOPE, coming soon.

These books are available at Barnes & Noble or Amazon, but better yet, buy them at your local book store. If they don't have it at the moment, ask them to order it for you and they will. This way we can keep independent books stores alive and thriving.
