By Sid J. Truscott

It is August 1929 and for weeks, there has been no rain in Athebasca Landing. Jack Bishop is a militarist who enjoys his lively discussions about the Great War with his pacifist friend, Dr. Blackwood. But when duty calls, Colonel Bishop quickly steps into his role as a fire-ranger assigned to protect the forests along the Pembina River. As a fire rages, Bishop falls ill. Now his life lies in the hands of Dr. Blackwood and a devoted German nurse, Ms. Nobil, also known as Hedwig.

After Nurse Hedwig prepares Bishop’s wife for the worst, he makes a miraculous recovery and must give his nurse credit for her vigilant care, despite Bishop’s hatred of Germans. As he continues to recover and immerses himself in his work and politics, he knows he will be forever indebted to Hedwig for keeping him alive. But when Hedwig is kidnapped by Rodnunsky—a blood-sucking octopus from Chicago—Geislinger is sent on a dangerous mission to America to find the nurse and hopefully rescue her from her abductor.

In this historical story, two distinct worlds collide in 1929 when a German nurse is kidnapped and life comes full circle as her fate rests with an unlikely hero.

Present day:

Sterling Morris reaches across the aisle to select Kaki Smithson as his Presidential running mate, uniting a polarized nation. But when an assassin’s bullet leaves the new President critically wounded in New Orleans’ Charity Hospital, tenacious journalist Ronnie Tamlin set her sights on a conspiracy and gives it a name: The BENEFACTORS - an organization that may have orchestrated Kaki’s rise to power and Sterling’s fall – and the consequences may prove fatal.

Flashback to 1945:

WWII is coming to a close. The Nazis and the Japanese have looted their empires and are secreting vast treasure. Leading the ranks of the OSS, three brazen agents, Herbert Mannington, Anthony Laperose, and Charles Constantine aid the U.S. to victory and in doing so, commandeer unimaginable wealth. As the world rebuilds, these well-intentioned renegades remain determined to establish a new world order while the pull of unfettered power begins to erode their sense of direction.

The Gold Factor, the first in the series and based on real events, is a twisting tale of intrigue that follows the rise of The BENEFACTORS, the legacy of a man who would see them stopped dead in their tracks, and the lives of four women entangled in a plot to assassinate a modern-day President.

“Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.”

—Franklin D. Roosevelt

On September 4, 1907, hatred and intolerance tore Bellingham, Washington, apart at the seams.

A brewing labor dispute over the presence of immigrant workers in the lumber mills boiled into unspeakable violence when Caucasian members of the Asiatic Exclusion League attacked Sikhs, dragging them from their homes and beating them without mercy. These victims were savagely robbed of their possessions, their dignity, and any sense of safety in their homes. In the days following the riots, hundreds of South Asian Indians were driven out of town. Hundreds fled to Canada for safe harbor. Hundreds more were incarcerated “for their own protection.”

None of their white attackers ever saw the inside of a jail cell.

A novel inspired by both these tragic events and the inspirational people who risked everything to start new lives in a new and often unwelcoming country, Unbeaten Mind is the story of one family whose patriarch, Nand Johal Singh, emigrated from Punjab, India, to the United States at the turn of the twentieth century. When Nand Singh, his grandson, first learned of his grandfather’s involvement in the Bellingham riots, he was horrified and shocked. That shock inspired curiosity, and soon the young man launched himself into an enthusiastic exploration of his personal family history.

What he discovered is proof that while a body can be beaten, an honorable mind remains strong, proud, and resilient.

The author would like to invite the reader to take a journey with her back in time.

I am writing this novel about my family who lived in the late 1800s. My parents, Michael and his wife Filomena Dell’Orfano, were born 1878 and 1882, respectively. Chusiano di San Domenico d’ Avellino is a small town in the Province of Avellino in the Region of Campania in Naples, Italy.

Raffael and Camella Dell’Orfano lived there with their sons, Massimeno and Michele. The Dell’Orfano family and others in that area were identified as Bianco or “whiteheads“ due to their fair skin, blond and red haired.

During the day, the boys went to school and afterward worked in the fields, and learned the value of hard work at a young age. Later, Michele became interested in a young lady by the name of Filomena, though his father disapproved.

After a longtime disagreement between father and son, Michele, decided to marry his long time girl friend, Filomena, and left the homestead where he was born and raised. Later, Michele made his way to America, to build a new life for his family.

Creating a new identity is never easy. They struggled, but their love keeps them strong as they remember the old country and looked forward to their new land.

In 1917, Bolshevik revolutionaries stormed the Russian palace of the Romanovs and killed the entire family—or maybe. There is much conjecture over the remains of the spirited youngest daughter, Anastasia. Many believe she survived and lived a full life in secret. Could it be true? Could the little girl have survived the massacre?

Challenging Destiny is a fictional account of lone royal survivor, Anastasia. The story spans three continents and a century of death, destruction, and despair—but also reveals the strength it takes to overcome obstacles in life. Anastasia finds love and romance, even as she seeks to escape the memory of her family’s horrific assassination and humankind’s yearning for power.

The far-reaching influence of Queen Victoria comes into question as part of the Anastasia mystery. Across the world, no one is what he or she seems. The story of the Romanov grand duchess is filled with intrigue and danger, yet love and the human spirit can be victorious over the most horrendous memories.
