It's Published!

No, no, not the book...heh. Not yet!

My article appears in the Summer/Fall combined issue of Nebraska History, the journal of the Nebraska State Historical Society. Unfortunately, there isn't a link to the article. But I may try and see if I can't scan some pages in to show you!

In this article, I delve into how Hollywood films had an impact on the German POW's held at Fort Robinson, Nebraska, during World War II. It was actually a chapter in my thesis. :-)

It's rather exciting to see your name in print...I've had a few short stories published and some newspaper columns, but nothing on this scale. I'm so thankful that I was able to work as an intern at Nebraska History and I've stayed in contact with my former boss. Maybe someday I'll be able to work there...oh, what a dream job that would be!

  3. Ha! I get six contributor's copies - not a single cent. But that's okay - it's another published piece for my writing resume!
