Historical Fiction Inspired by Family

Ronsdale Press, July, 2021

If history was taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten. Kipling     

Heading up a writing workshop on October 18th in LaSalle, Manitoba. 

For seniors looking for inspiration to write their own family stories. 

Thank you to the readers who put Tainted Amber on the bestseller table for teen fiction at Winnipeg's McNally Robinson for 5 weeks this summer. I am gobsmacked!

This is the third book in my series exploring the tumultuous life of my mom during the Stalin and Nazi years. Katya is now 18 and working as a maid in rural East Prussia. 

Being young and in love can be a wonderful thing but in 1937, in the Third Reich, it's all about genetics not romance.  A novel for teens and adults.

You can order here or at your own favourite bookstore. 

For a taste of the book, here's a link to a reading I did a few months back during a Made in Manitoba Book Jam hosted by Anita Daher. My reading starts at about the 23 minute mark.

Here's an interview I recently did with nfreads.com 

Huge thanks to multi-award winning children's author Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch, author of Making Bombs for Hitler and many more books exploring untold war stories. She writes, "Goldstone deftly plunges the reader into a past when Hitler's ideas seemed new and fresh. A timely read."

Recording of July 28th launch available on YouTubeThanks to Jodi Carmichael who interviewed me. Grateful to McNally Robinson Booksellers for hosting the event. Thank you to all who attended!
