SOAR LIKE EAGLES
by Terri Wangard
Terri Wangard grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin,
during the Lombardi Glory Years. Her first Girl Scout badge was the Writer. These days she is writing historical fiction, and won the 2013 Writers on the Storm contest and 2013 First Impressions, as well as being a 2012 Genesis finalist. Holder of a bachelor’s degree in history and a master’s degree in library science, she lives in Wisconsin. Her research included going for a ride in a WWII B-17 Flying Fortress bomber. Classic Boating Magazine, a family business since 1984, keeps her busy as an associate editor.
Welcome, Terri. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why?
My great-great-grandmother who immigrated to America a year after her husband had gone ahead. What was it like to leave everything familiar and go to a land where they spoke another language, knowing she would probably never see Germany again?
Or maybe my 8 or 9x great grandmothers who left France in the seventeenth century to go to New France and be brides of the soldiers who were there. What was it like?
Where is your favorite vacation spot?
The Gulf Coast of Florida. I love to collect sea shells.
What is your favorite Bible verse?
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Phil. 4:6 NIV
Do you have a dedicated place to write, or a nook or corner of a room, or the kitchen table?
I have a desk you might find in a high school student’s room. My laptop is parked on top, usually surrounded by a mess of research notes, photocopies, books. The window looks out on a pine tree that is actively used by birds who come to the feeders below. They can be very distracting. The old film canister holds sand from Omaha Beach.
Please tell us a little about your novel, Soar Like Eagles.
She wants to do her part for the war, but struggles to maintain her ideals. He joins the air force, hoping to find peace.
Carol becomes a Red Cross doughnut girl, serving GIs and boosting their morale. Believing wartime romances are doomed to disappointment, she attempts to avoid entanglements and transfers to France, away from Chet, the airman she’s falling for.
Chet’s father always belittled him. Now a well-regarded navigator, he longs to prove him wrong. After he’s ditched in the North Sea, parachuted into France, and been called before a review, his focus changes to staying alive, and winning the Red Cross girl he keeps crossing paths with.
