Kristina “Kiki” Hansen and Bridget Doyle fell in love with aviation while in college. After graduation, they obtained one of the thousands of airplanes left over from the First World War and taught themselves the kinds of stunts that thrilled audiences all across the country, and that had made barnstorming one of the most popular forms of entertainment during the Roaring Twenties.
But by the middle of the decade, the U.S. Post Office began to hire private airlines to deliver mail, and the money involved in such contracts made certain undesirable elements of society take notice. Suddenly, the risks these daredevils faced were not only in the skies.
Follow our two intrepid aviatrices as they face action and adventure in this tale, set in the early days of aviation, and written as a homage to the cliffhanger serials of the first half of the twentieth century.
Barnstormers Book One is available at Amazon.com in paperback. Kindle version coming soon.
