"Night of the Cossack" is a compelling adventure by Tom Blubaugh about a teenager who is forced to grow up quickly. The story is based on Tom Blubaugh's maternal grandfather who was a Russian Cossack soldier in the early 1900's.

Tom Blubaugh felt deprived because he grew up without a grandfather. Both of his grandfathers died before he was born. Tom Blubaugh was especially fascinated with his maternal grandfather who immigrated from Russia when he was 22 years old. Not being able to obtain any significant information about his grandfather, he took what few facts that he did have and researched them. Upon finding out that the facts were indeed true, Tom Blubaugh embarked on writing the historical fiction story about his grandfather. His intent was to write this for his own pleasure, but upon sharing the story with others, he was convinced that it might be good enough to publish.

Tom Blubaugh joined an online critique group and met some published authors who recommended that he find a local critique group and pursue completion of the novel. He did this and the novel has now been published by Bound by Faith Publishers and is being marketed nationwide.

The main character in "Night of the Cossack", Nathan Hertzfield, faces many life or death situations during his saga. Join Nathan on his suspenseful journey through parts of Russia and Europe during the early 1900's.

Tom Blubaugh is a freelance writer. He has written nonfiction most of his adult life. He resides with his wife Barbara in Southwest Missouri where he is currently writing fiction. Tom and Barbara have six children and fourteen grandchildren.
