WHERESOEVER THEY MAY BE
by Terri Wangard


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. What is your favorite dessert? 
I love chocolate, but since I’m allergic to it and it causes migraines, I have to abstain. I do make a delicious apple pie.

What’s your favorite place you have visited? 
Just one?? I loved taking a Rhine River cruise and seeing all the castles. I love the Green Lake area in Wisconsin.

What’s one genre you have never written, and probably never will? 
Sci-fi or speculative.

Lighting Round:
Vacation--Beach or Mountains? Beach
Y’all or You Guys? You Guys
Biscuits or Dinner Roll? Biscuits
Spring, summer, winter, or fall? Spring
Laptop or Desktop? Desktop
Mug or teacup? Teacup

Please tell us a little about your novel, Wheresoever They May Be. 
Frank Swanson has plans. He has good job prospects, maybe even broadcasting in Hollywood. He has a
beautiful wife. The war is an interruption to a good life he’s eager to get back to.

Lily Swanson longs to be a mother. Soon Frank should be home for good and they can furnish a nursery. Maybe even find a bigger house.

Joe Gallagher grew up in a small house with plenty of siblings. He loves the solitude of flying, but the war has dragged on for so long. He’s ready to go home.

Susan Talbot has a bad attitude. She’s estranged from her family and she doesn’t attract friends. But war can bring out the best in people and Susan’s surprised to realize she’s happy.

They all do their part in striving for victory in World War II. Sometimes, though, the danger can be hard to identify.

Any parting comment? 
My goal is to write realistic stories. In war, that means horrific injuries, gruesome deaths, and shattered lives, both at the front and at home. My goal for Wheresoever They May Be was to end with hope.

Terri, thanks for visiting with my readers and me. Terri is offering an eBook copy of Wheresoever They May Be to one commenter to this blog post.
