Marilyn Celeste Morris Discusses Her Army Novel THE WOMEN OF CAMP SOBINGO

Many of you who read this blog know that I began it when my novel MRS. LIEUTENANT was published in April 2008. The novel takes place in 1970 during the Vietnam War and tells the story from the point of view of four different new army officers' wives. (See the site www.MrsLieutenant.com for more info.)

Thus I particularly enjoyed interviewing author Marilyn Celeste Morris, the guest on the BlogTalkRadio show YourMilitaryLife.com that Nancy Brown of YourMilitary.com and I co-host.

Marilyn's new novel is THE WOMEN OF CAMP SOBINGO:
Four women of diverse backgrounds form a bond while en route to join their army husbands in Korea in 1946. The women's experiences in a far-flung military compound strengthen three of the women, but a fourth chooses to end her life, and during a reunion 25 years later, long-held dark secrets and sorrows are revealed.
While MRS. LIEUTENANT is a fictionalized account of my experiences as a new Mrs. Lieutenant, Marilyn's novel is a fictionalized account of her mother's experiences when Marilyn was eight.

Listen to our interview with Marilyn now.


Phyllis Zimbler Miller is the author of the novel MRS. LIEUTENANT and the co-author of the Jewish holiday book SEASONS FOR CELEBRATION. She also writes articles as a National Internet Business Examiner and she is the co-host of the BlogTalkRadio show Your Military Life.

Phyllis' company has launched the monthly program WeTeachWebMarketing.com to help people promote their brand, book or business online. Her company also does Twitter tutoring -- see TeachMetoTweetNow.com
