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.

A Fantastic Time in Philly

We had more than just a great cheese steak during our recent weekend in Philadelphia. Janie and I attended the annual PIASA convention (Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences of America) where my friend Tom Napierkowski and I made a presentation about NIGHT OF FLAMES. Tom is is an English professor at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and has been a great fan and booster of the book. Together we told the story of Poland's courage and resistance during WW2. It was very well received, a lot of great questions and comments and the book sold extremely well. But the best part of the weekend was the chance to meet many gracious and interesting people, including Poland's Ambassador to NATO and the head of Cultural and Public Affairs for the Embassy of Poland in Washington D.C. We had some great Polish food, a gala reception and fine dinner in the center of Philadelphia's Historic Center. My thanks to Tom for suggesting the idea, to Dr. Thad Gromada for putting us on the agenda and to all the people who treated us so warmly. We hope to be back again sometime soon.
