About the Author

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Diane Phelps Budden spent over 30 years in corporate and academic marketing in Michigan before moving to Sedona, Arizona, and launching Red Rock Mountain Press. She wrote and published the picture book Shade; a story about a very smart raven, followed by The Author's Concise Guide to Marketing: how to jumpstart sales of your self-published book for first-time authors needing marketing skills. Responding to the need for a children's non-fiction book about ravens, she researched and wrote The Un-Common Raven: one smart bird that received recognition as a Panelist Pick in the 2013 Southwest Books of the Year and a finalist in the New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards.

"Dear Hubby of Mine: Home Front Wives in World War II is a true story based on loving letters between Diane Phelps Budden's parents during the war...Under Budden's hand, her parents' experiences and love comes to life with hard-earned lessons for others who may be struggling with separation, social change, and the demands of being war wives and husbands committed to both country and each other. Dear Hubby of Mine is not just the story of one husband and wife. It's a snapshot of the experiences of a nation under siege on the battlefields of social change. No World War II, feminist, or social history collection should be without this vibrant, enlightening survey that seamlessly puts the personal touch back into social, political, and military issues.

It should also be noted that while the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II will be celebrated in 2020, most participants of that era have since passed, making works like these letters some of the only eyewitness legacies of the times--and thus making their publication and discussion even more important."
