This writer is looking for an agent.
I am a published author and, in my freelance days, a widely published journalist now based in Denver. My nonfiction manuscript, "A Small Treason, 1944," follows the story of the only American soldier convicted of treason in the U.S. during World War II and the small mutinous knot of brilliant, alienated, gay men he led. Theyl aimed to disrupt the American war effort.
They were caught with German POWs and sentenced to long prison terms. One was sentenced to hang. And a decade later all were successful businessmen, albeit with secrets to keep.
The story is part tale of a comically smart misfit Army unit; part social, World War II, legal and political history that stretches from the dreams of the isolationist ‘30s to the American Century’s peak and the start of its long slide down.
The manuscript is complete and comes in at just under 89,000 words (plus endnotes, index and bibliography).
I am looking for representation and publication.
