Denise explained how she researched and wrote her historical fiction book "Orchids of War". 

The book is based on the Japanese spies who were on our west coast from Alaska to Mexico and on Hawaii in the 1920's and up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. 

She showed a slideshow identifying key spies and maps of areas of military importance that were under observation in preparation for war.
