Author Historian Genealogist
Welcome to my website, and thank you for coming. I hope you'll find something of interest here, and that you'll keep coming back to see what's new.
My father, Kenneth Redline, a soldier in World War I, wrote a novel based on his war experiences. I have the manuscript, written in pencil in longhand back in the 1930s. I've decided to publish it in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of American involvement in World War I, April 2017. So I've been editing the manuscript and have it ready for publication. The title is Dig or Die, a riveting chronology of the major battles fought by the first American unit to arrive in France, the First Infantry Division, known as "The Big Red 1." My father was wounded and gassed, and was honored to receive the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star and the Silver Star. I love the idea that a soldier in that war wrote about his experiences and that 100 years later, his daughter has edited and published his work. So keep an eye out for Dig or Die to come out in April 2017. Oh, and one other thing. My son, John Coopey, has shown a talent for cover design and he's come up with a stunning cover for his grandfather's book. Take a look!
I'm planning a promotional tour in Pennsylvania in April for Dig or Die. I hope to see many of you readers. Check my schedule on my appearances page.
As for future projects, I'm working on one, have one making its way around my brain and one in the far recesses of my mind. That's all I'll say for the present, but you can be sure I'll keep writing!
