The Dancing Delilahs: Pauline Cushman & Antonia Ford, Civil War Spies

One spy romanced and married her captor. Another, recruited by the Secret Service, packed a pistol and a hard punch. Antonia Ford and Pauline Cushman were as daring yet desirable as today's action movie heroines. Breaking every rule of genteel society, they joined one side in the conflict while stealthily serving the other.

Pauline, an actress by trade, used her skills to enchant army officers as she gathered information on their troops, becoming the only female spy sentenced to hang. Her life a medley of despair and triumph was her best role. Antonia, an expert at reading infantry information, used her beauty, charm and character for her beloved cause. Despite dodging bullets and injury, she too was captured and imprisoned.

Each woman excelled in speaking for one side while acting for the other. Both earned the rank of Major. What could inspire two ordinary women to give up beloved children while risking life and limb? How could they charm battle-hardened soldiers into divulging crucial military plans on one day, and then withstand personal loss and danger the next? Be transported into the real-life world of two legendary women warriors who changed the course of the American Civil War--and our future forever.

Lady Unveiled: Catharine Greene Miller

During a compelling life that took her from Rhode Island to Cumberland Island, GA, Kitty Greene broke the bondage of tradition. Married to the legendary General Nathanael Greene, this controversial, independent woman charmed and inspired living icons: Benjamin Franklin, George and Martha Washington, Henry and Lucy Knox, “Mad” Anthony Wayne and others through the tumultuous times surrounding the Revolutionary War.

Faced with challenges that would unnerve a less resourceful woman, Kitty made a name for herself. A churning mass of contradictions—beautiful, elegant and intelligent—she also made meaningful contributions to ongoing political discussions led by her husband and his friends. Drawn to the company of men at social gatherings, Kitty was slandered for bending the rules of propriety. Yet this enabled her to be instrumental in the development of the age’s most remarkable invention, the cotton gin. Because of the limitations of her era, she took no credit, giving Eli Whitney all rights of invention. Founding Mother Catharine Greene Miller's irrepressible spirit and influence altered the history of America.

An Angry Drum Echoed: Mary Musgrove, Queen of the Creeks

"As I read Angry Drum Echoed, I was increasingly aware of having followed Mary all my life. You evoked a delicious atmosphere in your story that I experienced first hand. I was born near the Ocmulgee River and wandered through Yamacraw Bluff as a child, visiting St. Catherines Island the first time as a teenager, later returning to live on the island at age 24. One of the many brilliant moments in the story includes Mary's school report, where you skillfully summarized the white man's indebtedness to the generosity of the Indians, and then portrayed our inability to recognize and acknowledge it. The lyrical passion in your prose is powerful: a joy to read."

Neptune's Honor: A Story of Loyalty and Love.

"As a descendant of Neptune Small and a student of coastal Georgia history, I'm delighted that a story has been written in honor of my great-great-grandfather's heroism. Neptune's Honor touched me deeply. I felt as though I were there with Neptune experiencing his life, smelling musty earth odors of the island marshes and feeling the ocean breezes as they blew on Neptune's St. Simons Island. While Neptune's Honor is a very touching and powerful story of love, loyalty and honor, it is based on the life of a privileged slave, and in no way represents the level of intense bondage and deprivation endured by the vast majority of my enslaved ancestors."
----William Bernard Barnes Jr., Great-great-grandson of Neptune Small

"Neptune's Honor is a moving tale of the ages, for all ages, and is based on a true story! Neptune comes to life as he exemplifies the real essence of the human experience through endurance, commitment, bravery, devotion and, most of all, HONOR! This story of bondage, courage and ultimate freedom in the plantation south is told by Pamela Bauer Mueller with great passion, energy, accuracy and wonderful readability."

The Bumpedy Road: If you wish to learn about cats, only a cat can tell you. Humans mean well when they write cat stories, but they are far less advanced than they fancy themselves. Sometimes, but rarely, a human is lucky enough to imagine part of himself into a cat. This would allow that person’s cat to imagine part of himself into a human being. And that’s where the magical relationship begins! I am one of those lucky cats."
