Teddy Roosevelt on Service

"Merciful service gives itself rich, but selfish isolation hoards itself poor."

I am a great admirer of Teddy Roosevelt.

As I pondered how to create a compelling biography of two leading suffragettes, I realized that without telling the stories of other prominent women during the same time period, it would be impossible to convey why men yielded (at long last) to women's demand to vote.

Hence I've written an ensemble biography.

"The Privilege of Voting" is a new and exhaustively researched historical e-mail series that portrays the many twists and turns that played into women winning the vote.

It goes behind the scenes in the lives of eight well-known women from 1912 to 1920, and reveals the shocking truth of HOW the suffragettes won the right to vote in America and England.

The chronological, sequential series is written in a unique, short-story format called Coffeebreak Readers.

An e-mail series is a different way to tell the story, but it makes history exciting, easy and fun.

The series features presidents Roosevelt, Wilson and Harding, and PM Lloyd George.

The women depicted include two of the most beautiful and outspoken suffragettes -- Alice Paul and Emmeline Pankhurst, along with Edith Wharton, Isadora Duncan, Alice Roosevelt, and two stunning presidential mistresses.

There are weddings and funerals, babies in peril, damsels in distress, war, peace, broken hearts and lots of affairs.

The best part is it's ALL true!

Each action-packed e-mail episode takes about 10 minutes to read, so they are perfect to enjoy on coffeebreaks, or anytime.
