In DARE TO MAKE HISTORY, (forthcoming 2/23 from Diversion Books), "twin sisters Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando chronicle their path to a 2018 Olympic gold medal in women’s ice hockey.

Stranger than fiction! THAT’s why it’s in our History section: Dylan Taylor-Lehman's account of "the world’s most stubborn micronation on a World War II anti-aircraft gun platform off the coast of England" (Diversion Books). "'Sealand' is the raucous tale of how a rogue, larger-than-life adventurer seized the disused Maunsell Sea Fort from a group of pirate radio broadcasters, settled his eccentric family on it, and defended their tiny kingdom from UK government officials and armed mercenaries for half a century. Incorporating original interviews with surviving members of the principality’s royal family, Dylan Taylor-Lehman recounts the riveting battles and schemes as Paddy and his crew engaged with diplomats, entertained illegal pirate radio and TV broadcasting, and even thwarted an attempted coup that saw the Prince Regent taken hostage. Incredibly, more than fifty years later, the self-proclaimed independent nation still stands—replete with its own constitution, national flag and anthem, currency, and passports—and offers the esteemed titles of 'Lord' or 'Lady' to its loyal patrons."
