A Piece of My Heart provides an absorbing and moving experience about a tumultuous period in American history—the Vietnam War. It is a powerful, true drama about six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play portrays the courageous story of each young woman as she struggles through the experiences that leave scars yet triumphs as a result of their tour through the war-torn nation. With the backdrop of the memorial wall in Washington, A Piece of My Heart is a salute to the men and women who represented our country during a divisive era.

A *NEW* Murder Mystery: They Clone from Outer Space

They say hindsight is 20-20, and in hindsight, we probably shouldn’t have cloned a human. But, in the year 2020, Olympic decathlete, Al Lele, was cloned and the Blender line was born. Now in its third generation, Dr. Gene Blender has defied all odds. He’s married, has three daughters, and is a lead scientist at the University that created him. The hope was that he’d outlive all the previous clones in his line, but that hope died with him.

Amid protests about clones stealing American jobs, accusations of sexual misconduct, the unexpected delivery of divorce papers, and (according to some) the threat of invading aliens altering his genetic make-up, Dr. Gene Blender was found dead in his lab. Was it a heart attack or something more sinister? Who would destroy such a medical marvel? What was in those magic genes that made them so resilient to repeat cloning, and what can the DNA evidence tell us about the murder?

About the Author: Dr. Valerie J. Mikles is a recent inductee onto the BCT Board and is delighted to debut this original murder mystery. Scientist by day, sci-fi writer by night, and theater junkie in the hours between, her motto in life is “I can be everything I want, just not all at the same time.” Valerie’s novels will be available for purchase and signing by the author herself at our March Murder Mystery at Wendy’s! The paperback books are $15 each, and cash/credit are accepted.
