Betsy Kuhn writes fiction and nonfiction for young and not-so-young readers.
Praise for Betsy's books:
Angels of Mercy: The Army Nurses of World War II:
"In six gripping chapters, one for each year of the war and its immediate aftermath, Kuhn tracks nurses in the Pacific and European theaters.... Not just for history fans..., this title should appeal to most readers with a penchant for true-life adventure stories." The Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books
"This enjoyable, well-written account has a fresh perspective, and it will add much needed balance to male-only accounts of the war." Booklist
The Race for Space: The United States and the Soviet Union Compete for the New Frontier:
"...[T]his absorbing account provides a coherent, well-researched and clear-eyed view of the Space Race as experienced on both sides of the Iron Curtain." School Library Journal
*A note about those pencils: Betsy's favorite writing tool is a good, sharp Dixon Ticonderoga pencil (but never, ever ever a dull one).
