Her current books are Wojtek War Hero Bear (9-12), From the Volga to the Clyde (Second World War, Poland, Holocaust-related, 15+), and literary biography From Corsets to Communism (covers Polish 20th century history from 1884-1954). She's currently seeking a publisher for MG novel set in Eastern Poland in 1920.
