World War II novel

Completing a WWII novel that deals in part with the Battle of the Atlantic. Many folks don’t realize how close WWII came to mainland American shores. I first got interested in this subject years ago during my college days. With the UNC-Chapel Hill Scuba Club, I dived on several WWII shipwrecks off the Outer Banks, and many of those wrecks were victims of German U-boats. In this video, divers explore the wreck of the John D. Gill, a tanker torpedoed in 1942.

    I look forward to purchasing your World War II novel when it comes out.
    My father’s family saw multiple members serve in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters during WWII. Ironically, they were Germans who had only emigrated in the early 1900’s, and suffered a fair amount of harassment until their sons went into service and then they were viewed as Americans like everyone else.
    I hope this new direction for you doesn’t mean the end of the Parson and Gold series. I love the series and hope it continues.
