a bit about the book

Night of Flames paints a vivid and terrifying picture of war-torn Europe during WWII. It’s the tale of a Krakow university professor Anna and her husband Jan, a Polish cavalryman. Separated and forced to flee occupied Poland, Anna soon finds herself caught up in the Belgian Resistance, while Jan becomes embedded in British Intelligence efforts to contact the Resistance in Poland. He seizes this opportunity to search for his lost wife Anna. Through the long night of Nazi occupation, Anna, Jan and the ordinary people of two countries fight a covert war of sabotage and resistance against the overwhelming might of the German war machine.

Belgian Hospitality at its Best

Last night was one of the highlights of my journey with NIGHT OF FLAMES. The American Club of Brussels sponsored a "Meet the Author" event at the Brussels Renaissance Hotel. It was indeed a classy event - true Belgian hospitality, complete with a bar, passed hors d'oeuvres,and the warm comaradarie of about sixty ACB members and guests. We were particularly honored to have as our special guests several members of Comete Kinship Belgium, including Nadine Dumon, Jeanine de Greef, and Monique Hannotte, veterans of this extraordinary WW2 escape organization. Waterstone's Bookstore of Brussels was on hand with a supply of books which kept me busy signing copies during sips of Leffe. A lively question & answer session followed the presentation with everyone participating, including our veteran Comet Line agents. Janie and I extend our sincere thanks to Cobb and Lana Rogers, our hosts for the evening; to Brigitte, Martine, Edouard and Philippe of Comete Kinship fror their continuing support; to the members of ACB for their warm hospitality; and to the Vermeylens, our dear friends and extended family here in Belgium.
