Wednesday, December 3, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is taking a look at World War II through the eyes of two well-known writers of historical novels, the award-winning author Pam Jenoff and James MacManus.
Pam Jenoff has written several novels, including the Quill Award nominee, THE KOMMANDANT’S GIRL. Jenoff is a graduate of George Washington University, Cambridge and Penn Law. She served as the special assistant to the Secretary of the Army. In 1996, after moving over from the Pentagon to the State Department, she was assigned to the U.S. Consulate in Krakow, Poland where she developed an expertise in Polish-Jewish relations and the Holocaust. THE WINTER GUEST is her latest book, the story of twin sisters fighting for survival in Nazi occupied Poland and the mysterious American pilot that lands on their doorstep.
London born James MacManus was educated at Westminster School and graduated from St. Andrews University. He has worked for the Daily Express and the Guardian first as a reporter and then as a foreign correspondent. He moved to The Times where he serves as Managing Director of the Times Literary Supplement. He is the author of several novels including BLACK VENUS and OCEAN DEVIL made into a film starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers. His latest book SLEEP IN PEACE TONIGHT takes place in 1941 London, and brings to life the tale of Harry Hopkins, the adviser to Franklin D. Roosevelt dispatched to London on the eve of the Second World War and the history-making relationship he forms with Britain’s Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

1941 - On the eve of America’s entry into World War II, Nazi Germany is developing a new weapon of unprecedented power, one that will give them ultimate victory over all the nations of the world. But the war turns against them before it is completed, and a conspiracy forms to preserve the weapon and carry on the research.
1999 - At the dawn of a new century, Alex Pyke, a self-styled bachelor entrepreneur, wants only the American Dream of a bigger house and a fatter bank account. But a business opportunity lures him back to Germany, the country he left as an orphan of five during the height of the Cold War. Upon his arrival, he is swept up in a deadly adventure involving an aging industrialist and his brilliant, beautiful niece. Even as Alex unravels the mysteries of his own family’s history, he makes a discovery that will change the direction of his life, and maybe the whole world beyond.
Seeing by Moonlight is a thriller that combines uncovered history of the German rocketry program with a science fiction twist to create a sweeping tale of secrets and love that spans generations past, present, and future.

The Tupperware Blitzkrieg
I was raised in Harwood Heights, Ill., a suburb bordering Chicago, growing up across the parking lot from the neighborhood tavern that my grandfather built in the 1930s. I’m all over the map when it comes to what I like in literature, music, TV and movies, but I do tend to veer toward some more than others. In short, I'm interested in any number of things, far too many for my limited free time to accommodate. As a writer I tend to stay in the fantasy and science fiction genres (adding liberal doses of humor when needed) but I’m willing to try my hand at anything, which, curiously enough, led to my three books I’ve published.

From Wikipedia.org: Found footage is a genre of film making, especially horror, in which all or a substantial part of a film is presented as discovered film or video recordings, often left behind by missing or dead protagonists.
Terry M. West and Pleasant Storm Entertainment, Inc. present a revolutionary approach to the horror fiction anthology.

Each tale is a case file that has been transcribed from some type of unearthed diary. These tales can be discovered anywhere.
