Turtle Cove Press welcomes author Taylor Phillips. Look for his fascinating account of Jerrie Mock’s record-setting flight around the world, ETA March 2020. Queen of the Clouds: Jerrie Mock and Joan Merriam Smith’s Epic Quest to Become the First Woman to Fly Solo Around the World tells the fascinating story of what both women experienced as they set out on their adventures.

Taylor interviewed both Jerrie Mock and Joan’s widower, Capt. Jack Smith, and spent years combing through newspaper archives and other materials to capture the thrilling tale of the first woman to fly solo around the world. His manuscript is a page-turner!  More details and a cover reveal will follow.
