Jane Singer is a Civil War scholar and author of The Confederate Dirty War: Arson, Bombings, Assassination and Plots for Chemical and Germ Attacks Against the Union published by McFarland & Company in August of 2005. In November of 2006, the History Channel based a two-hour special called Civil War Terror on her book. She was both the historical consultant for the project as well as the primary on screen narrator. Her writing has been featured in the Washington Post Magazine (The Fiend in Gray), The Washington Times (Felix Stidger and the Sons of Liberty). Her research and discovery of Stidger; a little-known American hero, were illuminated in a Chicago Sun-Times article. Singer is a member of The Author's Guild, Pen West and The American Historical Association. She is also a professional actor, voice-over artist, narrator and lecturer. Born and raised in Falls Church, Virginia, she now lives in Los Angeles, California, and is available to speak to various groups across the country about her work on Booth's Sister.
She has just written, produced and directed Green Zone Blues: Voices of War; a series of voices of ordinary men and women caught in the crosshairs of our troubled times. A CD of the production will soon be available.
