The Simi Valley earthquakes in L. Fatefully, that vessel accidentally motored into Cuban waters, leading to imprisonment of myself and three other crewmen. The Cubans could not decide whether we were paramilitary we had military surplus , CIA operatives, marijuaneros [marijuana smugglers], or bumbling seamen.
Those experiences are described in Cuban Blues, an account of my experiences in Cuban prisons in the s, including solitary confinement, house arrest in a mansion, leading a prison riot with other Americans, a trial before Revolutionary Tribunal Numero Uno, and two hunger strikes that led to my release along with the other three crewmen. The pre-sentence reports I compiled for the judges formed a foundation for much of my subsequent writing.
I was promoted to director of a Big Brothers-type program for several years before leaving to pursue a year career as a public relations and communications consultant for a medical center and, most prominently in Delaware, with the New Castle County Library System, Delmarva Power, the University of Delaware, and the YMCA of Delaware.

16 American Historical Romance Books We Can't Stop Swooning Over
Though in recent years the genre has made great progress in the push for greater diversity , the research that I undertook to write this piece has made it painfully clear that there are still massive holes in representation. This past April , at the annual Popular Culture Association conference, one of the Romance section presenters discussed a novel called Cogewea by Native American author Mourning Dove.
The presenter, Dr. Mourning Dove was a fan of Western romances, and wanted her novel to fit into that genre. Cogewea tells the story of a girl caught between two worlds: that of the Anglo ranchers and that of the full-blood reservation Indians. While, like other early romance novels from that era, Cogewea may not fit every modern expectation of a romance novel, its love story is undeniably the heart of the novel.
And it is love, ultimately, which allows Cogewea to resolve her own conflicted identity. Yazzie chose the historical romance form, much like Mourning Dove chose the Western romance, in order to tell the history not just of the Navajo people, but of the the Navajo women.
