About the Author

D.A. Spruzen is the author of three works of fiction and a short collection of poems; her short stories and poems have appeared in many journals and anthologies, both online and print. She earned an MFA in Creative Writing from Queens University of Charlotte, and teaches creative writing in Northern Virginia when she is not seeking her own muse. In another life she served as Manager of Publications for a defense contractor. She served for ten years on the board of an organization that provides residential services for the intellectually disabled and has extensive experience with the prejudice and ignorant attitudes suffered by those with such challenges. She learned first-hand that acceptance and understanding, not to mention exposure to the good things our world has to offer, are crucial to the enjoyment of a rich and fulfilling life.

Reviews

"The Blitz Business is a tale of resilience during World War II through the eyes of Jamie, a teenager with intellectual disabilities. D.A. Spruzen's narrative will make readers rethink their perceptions of the challenges facing people with such challenges, a bold and progressive perspective even in today's modern world." -Betsy Schatz, Executive Director, Langley Residential Support Services, a residential and community support provider for adults with intellectual disabilities --------- "The Blitz Business is a fine book, with characters you come to care about and root for; Jamie, the 15 year old main character is memorable and well drawn-an unconventional lead in a story of not only survival but redemption. This historical novel is a winner." -Robert Bausch, Author of Far as the Eye Can See and The Legend of Jesse Smoke "The Blitz Business is an extremely ambitious novel, about big issues and big events, with a large and compelling cast of characters and a complexity that evolves to a wonderfully satisfying resolution. This is an outstanding debut that gives us a whole new angle on the last great war while offering richly imagined characters who are real from the first page to the last." -Fred Leebron, Author of Christiania and In the Middle of All This "Deeply moving and endlessly surprising, The Blitz Business brings heart and unexpected light to the darkest corners of war-torn London. In Spruzen's capable hands, a vulnerable young man's search for a forever home becomes an irresistible journey filled with indelible characters and real danger. A novel of striking wisdom limned with a gritty historical edge." -Laura Benedict, Author of the Bliss House trilogy
