The Mystic High Adventures of Fannie Flame & Crew      A Memoir

    Never, tell a redhead she can't do something, especially if her heart 
                  is set on a dream!
Claudia Hagen, a redhead, saw a hot air balloon for the first time and had to have one. The foolish pilot told her, "Women can't fly balloons." Big mistake!
        One year later, she had her own balloon, commercial balloon pilot license, and won her    first competition.                      
                    "The Mystic High Adventures of Fannie Flame & Crew"
is a behind-the-scenes look at Claudia's struggles and triumphs while floating over and through twelve years of ballooning.
                               Hilarious, heart warming, and history making.

The Night A Fortress Fell To Fairfield
                  Where were you February 3, 1943 when the Fortress Fell?    

While on a routine ferrying flight from Great Falls, Montana, to Ephrata, Washington, a massive B-17 Flying Fortress tangled with an unexpected blizzard. The blizzard won.
Dubbed the Fairfield Fortress by the author, the bomber crashed its way into the lives of its crew, a farm family, and the small wheat farming town of Fairfield, Washington.  


The farm family belongs to the author: her grandparents, father, and aunt. She weaves their story with the factual records from the crew and townspeople as well as interesting facts about the B-17 bomber and life during WWII. One crewman from this incredible story is alive today at age 95, George Kallio. He drew the covers for the book and with his historian, Gary Simmons, contributed greatly to this true story.


"It was such a tiny incident for a nation at war, but it left a mark on so many lives, in so may ways," states the author. This is a small book with a big story!
