“I say set fire to the rain. Ignite the flames with what is true and just. Torch the blaze with our courage and resolve so when we are done, all men will be free!”
~ General Daniel Morgan, Set Fire to the Rain, Bk 4 Winds of Betrayal

Six long years, the war has raged. Six long years, the Corbett siblings have clung to the belief in their cause. Moreover, the war is far from over!

The Southern Army is in tatters with the devastating defeat at Camden. But all is not lost. General Washington sends his most trusted general, Nathanael Greene, to lead what is left of the army. In the darkest hour, Greene, in turn, draws upon the Old Wagoner, General Daniel Morgan.

At his northern headquarters, Washington faces his toughest decisions. Once more, he turns to his most trusted spy ring. Once more, he seeks the information needed to turn the war. This time, though, he needs more. He needs to feed the British misleading intelligence. He needs the British to believe he is eyeing New York…at least, until it is too late for them to act.

Spies and traitors! Love and Betrayal! Winds of Betrayal is coming to a dramatic conclusion! Follow Jonathan and Hannah Corbett on their final path of their fight for freedom!

INSPIRATION FOR WINDS OF BETRAYAL SAGA

windsofbetrayalbundle

AMAZON         BARNES AND NOBLE      ITUNES

Oh, what to write! A dramatic murder suspense? A scary page-turning paranormal? A love story for the ages? So many possibilities run rapid through my mind staring at a blank page. Why then am I drawn to historical suspense? Why does the past conjure up so many tales to be told? 

Perhaps I romanticize the past or simply it’s a connection to the past I seek. I know only that I love the challenge of recreating a bit of history. I’ll let you in on a little secret. I love history. As you might suspect with my writings, I find the American Revolution utterly fascinating. 

So many ideas swirl around my little head when I do research and none more so than when I was doing research for Winds of Betrayal. It was how I discovered the Culper Spy Ring. The more I read, the more fascinated I became with the spy ring. Inspiration! Everything one could wish to write a thriller…action, intrigue, danger, love. So the Winds of Betrayal began loosely based on Washington’s elite spy network. 

The danger of living the life of a spy was enormous. They lived with the constant fear of discovery. If discovered, they faced the hangman’s noose as was seen with the death of Nathan Hale. During occupation of New York by the British, Nathan Hale was caught by the Redcoats and hanged without trial. Afterwards, Washington appointed Tallmadge head of the Continental Army’s secret service. With that, Tallmadge established the Culper Spy Ring. 

With secrecy being of the utmost importance, Washington never even knew the names of those in the ring. He knew them only by numbers or an alias.

 My research led me to speculate about women’s roles during this time. With nothing being more dangerous at that time than spying and the price of being caught for a man was hanging, what about a woman? At the beginning of the war, neither American nor British thought women capable of such a deception. But I believe that women were…and would have been quite efficient in their efforts. 

The women seemed to have been just as passionate for their cause as the men of that time. Case and point, Margaret Kemble Gage, American born wife of General Thomas Gage, Commander of the British Army at the beginning of the American Revolution in Boston. Did you know that it was highly suspected that Margaret Gage supplied information to Patriot leaders? It was suspected she may have even given the information that led to the famous ride of Paul Rever. Her punishment…General Gage sent her to England. 

Although for another woman, I doubt the punishment would have been as lenient, especially after the war began to turn in favor of the Patriot cause. But without question, I write about strong, opinionated women, who have to overcome adversity to achieve their happiness.
Winds of Betrayal saga is a riveting, captivating historical series. I invite you to be swept away back into the past. Enjoy!
