Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch writes about war from a young person’s point of view. She is the author of more than twenty books for young people; many shine a spotlight on the complicated history of WW2 and its aftermath, still being enacted today in the war in Ukraine.

Her protagonists are children and teens who must cope with the horrors of war as active participants, finding their way with resilience, courage, and wit. Traitors Among Us is based on the very real Soviet 'Silence Camps' in the Soviet Zone and Soviet Union following the end of WW2. Krystia and Maria, teen-age sisters from a small town in Ukraine, have separately survived harrowing wartime situations. As the book opens it is 1945. WW2 is over, but not the repercussions of the war. Krystia and Maria, together at last, have sought asylum in the American Zone—a transient and short lived interlude of safety.

Marsha’s books are widely available in bookstores and libraries in audio, book form and e-book. They are published by Scholastic in Canada and the US.
