I write award-winning historical romance about pirates, privateers, smugglers and the occasional possum.

Hedy's Folly: The Life And Breakthrough Inventions Of Hedy Lamarr, The Most Beautiful Woman In The World - Richard Rhodes I enjoyed this book about the work of a great woman inventor, someone who paved the way for our wireless communication in the 21st C. Recognition of Ms. Lamarr's work is long overdue, but I was tickled to notice in the recent X-Men movie that young Charles Xavier had a picture of Hedy Lamarr on his dresser. I'm glad the word is getting out about this unsung heroine of tech.
