He Brought the Past to Life for Me

RH_coverMy writing tag is “Bringing the Past to Life”. That’s my passion, and I do it through historical fiction. Last week, however, I got a call from Julian Kulski, a man now well into his eighties, who was a Boy Scout in Warsaw, Poland during WWII and helped fight against the German occupiers of Warsaw at the age of twelve.

Dr. Kulski generously agreed to read my book’s manuscript and comment on it before publication. He was a great help. The book came out last month, so I sent him a copy, and, kind man that he is, called last week to thank me for the book and encourage me in writing the next two books in the planned trilogy. I was so thrilled. Dr. Kulski definitely brought the past to life for me through reaching out and making a personal contact. I want to remember that as a writer. As much as I love historical fiction, personal contacts also play a huge part in bringing the past to life!

You can see a trailer for the book at youtu.be/_AwZhJ9pGBY.
