Gwen Strauss is an award-winning children’s author and poet whose poems, short stories and essays have appeared in numerous journals including Catapult, The New Republic, London Sunday Times and New England Review among others.

The Nine follows the true story of her great aunt Helene Podiasky, who led a band of nine female resistance fighters as they escaped a German forced labor camp and made a ten-day journey across the front lines of WWII.

“A narrative of the unfathomable courage… Ms. Strauss does her readers – and her subjects – a worthy service by returning to the appalling history of women caught up in a time of rapacity and war.” – Wall Street Journal
