From a very early age Regina Edwards Drumm loved to read. There were so many great books that she read growing up, but her real love affair was with the romance novel. Besides reading what she could get her hands on, she began filling up lots of notebooks with tales of her own.

Ronald Reagan in the Old West. It seems like a natural fit—he did, after all, star in a number of Hollywood westerns. But more than that, the Reagan story reads like a western. He was a plain-speaking man who came into town and took on the bad guys, rallied the townspeople, got shot, triumphed over adversity, and turned around the fortunes of the town. To conservatives and fans of Reagan, parts of his story have already become legend, and in this novel I have set out to mythologize that legend using the Old West as the backdrop.
This is the first of three completed novels in which fictional Vienna Police Inspector KARL MARBACH is a central character. The story takes place in mid April of 1938, one month after the Anschluss, the Nazi annexation of Austria. Although born into a poor family, the police inspector identifies with the deposed Royal House of Habsburg. In his work and in his life, the police inspector prides himself on being guided by reason, not emotion. His lover is Volkstheater actress CONSTANZE TANDLER. He is concerned that her emotional hatred of Nazism is putting her in danger.
1856. A bookish medical student, a feisty eighteen-year-old Quaker maid, a lesbian naturalist and a grizzled war veteran team up to destroy a monstrous creature that arrives in the hold of a derelict whaling vessel. A novel that combines the rich period detail of "The Alienist" with the "we need to kill the monster" urgency of " Jaws."
The fictional book I have written is intended for entertainment and is designed to give the reader a weekend of enjoyable reading. To this end, it is short and to the point containing 140 pages, 37,000 words. I have used high points in entertainment that I have experienced over 60 years to convey the story. It is a tale of renewal. I use the technique of identifying the speakers used in “Our Gang” by P. Roth and, like his work, mine is not a play. I might characterize it as a novelette. It would probably make a good chick lit.
