Author's Meet


Standing at the front entrance of Milwaukee’s “Safe House”, disguised as the News Room of the Milwaukee Press Club, it’s founder David Baldwin, is shown. Accompanying him is Francis Gary Powers Jr., son of U2 spy plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers. The failed U2 flight mission, over the Soviet Union in 1960, was the Cold War’s most publicized intelligence mission.

Gathered inside the “Safe House” are the authors of the real and fantasy worlds of political intrigue and espionage.

Sitting, front and left is 007 author, Raymond Benson. Werner I. Juretzko, front and right, is sitting next to Gaston Vandermeerssche and Shauna Singh Baldwin (standing)

When the Germans invaded Belgium in 1940, nineteen-year-old Gaston Vandermeerssche  began his incredible career in the Resistance. Soon he was in charge of a network of two thousand spies operating in West Europe. His name topped the Gestapo’s most wanted list. Arrested,  imprisoned, tortured, and then sentenced to death, his life was only spared due to the rapidly advancing Allied Forces.

Raymond Benson was born and  raised in Texas. He is the official author of the many James Bond novels. The  first James Bond novel was written by Ian Fleming. Besides being a successful  writer, Raymond Benson spent several years directing plays in Texas and New York.

Shauna Singh Baldwin was born in Canada and raised in India. She is the author of many novels, short  fictions, poetry, essays, and published in literary magazines in the USA, Canada, and India. She is also the recipient of several international literary awards.

What the Body Remembers is an impressive account  describing the struggle of India’s political independence movement from colonial  oppression.

The “heat and intrigue” of the Cold War caught up with G2 United States Army Intelligence operative Werner I. Juretzko in 1955 on a spy mission behind the Iron Curtain. His capture by the KGB/STASI, torture, and sentencing to 13 years in prison, as harsh as it may seem, was only a token price he had to pay. Compared to the fate of dozens of his associates and western agents who paid the ultimate sacrifice when they walked their last steps to the merciless guillotine.
