I had the great pleasure of reviewing “The Pride of Poppies” for the Historical Novel Society. The book is a very impressive anthology of 13 stories illustrating World War I through GLBTQI* eyes. The book comprises a great selection of individual experiences that cover a great range: geographically and emotionally.
It is a perspective often neglected or over-dramatized and I applaud the book for hitting a lot of right tones in handling the subject.
Entertaining and thought provoking this not only fills a gap in WWI literature, it is also a very moving and stimulating read with plenty of original ideas. Very recommended.

I was eager to make contact with the team behind the anthology and I’m proud to have Julie Bozza here today to talk about herself and the book. Welcome Julie, please tell us a little about yourself as writer and as person.
