Two on Tuesday with Melina Druga

MelinaDruga Title

This week’s guest for the Two on Tuesday author spotlight is  historical fiction and nonfiction author and historical blogger, Melina Druga. Utilizing extensive research, her novel Angel of Mercy is the first in a trilogy following nurse Hettie and her family as they navigate the challenges and heartbreak World War 1 brings.  

Melina’s Two on Tuesday Facts:

  1. I wrote my first historical fiction novel when I was 10 years old. It was about two sisters in an 1840s Ohio canal town. I still have it, although the writing was done in pencil and, after more than 30 years, is so light I can barely read it.  It was the first of many novels. Angel of Mercy, however, is the first novel I’ve opted to share with the world.  But it won’t be the last.
  2. Angel of Mercy was inspired by the hard rock song “Mama” by My Chemical Romance from the album The Black Parade. The song references war imagery, and the album’s liner notes feature a sepia photograph reminiscent of World War One. If it weren’t for that song, Angel of Mercy wouldn’t exist and neither would any of my works-in-progress. (See below for the vlog discussion.)
