David Leroy Visits a Writer of History

Historical fiction author and blogger Mary Tod shares her interview with David Leroy, author of The Siren of Paris, a novel of the French resistance during World War II — http://awriterofhistory.com/2012/12/29/historical-fiction-author-david-leroy/

Rich in historical detail and full of suspense, The Siren of Paris explores the journey of one American from medical student, to artist, to political prisoner at Buchenwald Concentration Camp during World War II.

Marc, a French born American student, never suspected that he would become trapped in German occupied France when he came to Paris in the summer of 1939 to study art. While smuggling a downed airman out of the American Hospital, through the Paris resistance underground, his life is plunged into total darkness when someone he trusts becomes a collaborator agent for the Gestapo. Marc then must fight to save his soul when he is banished to the “Fog and the Night” of Buchenwald, where he struggles with guilt over the consequences of having his trust betrayed.

David Leroy Discusses The Siren of Paris at Mum’s Writings

Please visit Dee at Mum’s Writings: Mysteries and More to read a guest post by David Leroy, author of The Siren of Paris by David Leroy. Leroy’s debut novel explores the French resistance during World War II — http://bookread-mumswritings.blogspot.com/2012/07/the-sirens-of-paris-by-david-leroy.html

Here is a snippet:

Nothing is more real than fiction. Nothing helps us make sense of the real world more than fiction. Nothing instills in us empathy for others like fiction. (Bookriot).  Possibly the most elegant sentence I have read in ages.  I’ve always believed that fiction can move us into a better understanding of the world around us, the differences and similarities in people, and even create emotions within us that start our own personal changes

About Simple Sexy Foods

And it’s the only aphrodisiac cookbook written by a clinical sex therapist who also happens to be a foodie!

Linda DeVillers Author of Simple Sexy FoodA Message From Linda DeVillers PhD

I created this book to help you enjoy the remarkable relationship between food and sex. These two themes run brightly through my own life both personally and professionally, and are inseparable from my sense of who I am. Having counseled and taught thousands of people on the loving arts, and having fed nearly as many in my kitchens over the years, I find myself in a state of barely contained excitement over the opportunity to share what I know with you. I am the only author in this field to be credentialed in both sexual health and food, having worked and presented internationally and conducted research on the joint topic over the course of my career.

With the 1997 publication of my first book, Love Skills, now in its fourth edition, I was able to reach a broad audience of couples hungry for a fun, upbeat guide to more enjoyable lovemaking. My sense was, and is, that many of us bring a fairly narrow framework of understanding of four key skills—love talk, touch, body knowledge and playfulness—to our intimate relationships. I set about with that book to gently and positively awaken a deeper, joyful, satisfying experience for all who wished for more.

David LeRoy Visits Mom In Love With Fiction

Published historical fiction author, blogger, and reviewer Tia Bach spotlights The Siren of Paris, David Leroy’s novel of the French resistance during World War II, and shares an excerpt from the book — http://etjrmbach.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-siren-of-paris-by-david-leroy.html.

Rich in historical detail and full of suspense, The Siren of Paris explores the journey of one American from medical student, to artist, to political prisoner at Buchenwald Concentration Camp during World War II.

Marc, a French born American student, never suspected that he would become trapped in German occupied France when he came to Paris in the summer of 1939 to study art. While smuggling a downed airman out of the American Hospital, through the Paris resistance underground, his life is plunged into total darkness when someone he trusts becomes a collaborator agent for the Gestapo.
