We have learned so much about life in the 1930s and 40s in rural Iowa as we write about Anna’s life in Marshalltown, Iowa in the 1930s and 1940s.   Anna From Atlanta is set in the Great Depression and Anna of Iowa in World War II.  There is nothing more dramatic in life than the true events that took place.  We embellish them to create our two historic fiction novels.  We will be sharing our insights and observations about the real people who inspired the book and the events surrounding their lives and our own experiences as authors as we begin a new series of blog posts here on The Savvy List.

If you haven’t read the first book co-authored by Catherine Team and Beverly Smirnis, order it in print or get the e-book on Amazon.
