Background Information: This is based on my parent's experiences during and after World War II. My story concept is: World War II was a pivotal time in human history. It affected and changed most of the world – physically, geo-politically, and socially; most importantly, it affected individual lives. This is the story of a man and a woman from two different countries and lifestyles whose youthful meeting during World War II would shape who they would become and their eventual life together. Olive was raised in London, England. She was the youngest of four children, whose extended family lived a middle-class lifestyle. In wartime London, 1941, she met Lloyd, who as an only child had led an itinerant life with his widowed father in Western Canada. Bombed and ravaged London was the setting for the development of their romance. Olive and Lloyd laid the foundation of their relationship in the events of World War II. You will be introduced to them as individuals, witness their meeting, and follow their life together as long-time partners, facing the challenges of their post-War lives; challenges which were rooted in the events that occurred in England and Europe between 1939 and 1945. I have been writing seriously and doing intensive research since September 2007; although, a short edited version of their story has been related in a War Bride publications or begun for my adult nieces and nephew. In some ways, I have been researching the story all my life. Name: Michelle Rusk Setting: See above Genre: I call it creative non-fiction, as it is based on a real couple and as much as possible it relates their interaction with real people and real incidents in their life. I was not there for conversations when they were 18 or so; nor did they leave detailed diaries - which is where the creative aspect comes in as I write creativley about situations based on their personalities, what they told me over my life time, and upon factual research learned from their personal and other public documents. I have an extensive collection of photos and documents which I have been using as illustrations interwoven appropriately with the text, i.e. the front cover of the Illustrated War News for September 16, 1939. Unfortunately, I cannot add them in here. A copy of their name in their own handwriting is used in my version as the divider when it is their specific experience as the story develops. As stated in the rules for this new Forum, all my material here is copyright. I submit this portion of the story for your feedback, and to see if you would find such a story of interest once it is complete.
