Winston Churchill’s Renegade Spy
World War II ended seventy-five years ago, yet it still grips the American public. For way too long, decades in fact, fiction and non-fiction authors wrote mostly about men’s heroism during that period. Increasingly, however, women also have been celebrated for their cool-headed daring, cunning, and patriotism. I realized this recognition when researching my spy thriller, Winston Churchill’s Renegade Spy, a story that occurs during Britain’s darkest days in 1940. At that point, the United States still was isolationist.
