Aeroplane Angel

(Hollywood, CA)   Two  decades  before   the   Roaring  ‘20s   Harriet  Quimby  was
that  rare woman  who smoked  cigars  and  shot whisky with  the  boys.   She  was
a  model, silent screen  actress and journalist who transfixed  men with her stunning
beauty.  She was the first woman in  America to earn  a pilot’s license and  then fly a 
50 horsepower   monoplane   across  the  English  Channel.   In that  penultimate morning
o f her  historic flight,  “THE TITANIC SINKS,”  capturing  the history book headlines that should
have been Harriet Quimby’s. Three months later, still determined to get her “Notice,” she enters
a Boston air meet to break an air speed record. It’s there she flies a cutting edge, 70 HP, monoplane.
Speeding at 80 mph, she is thrown from her plane and tumbles two thousand feet to her death
before 5,000 horrified fans! At only 37 years old Harriet Quimby is dead.

So why hasn’t Harriet Quimby been championed a feminist hero? The explanation is simple; until
now, no one has known the full epic story of this remarkable woman’s life. 

California literary agent, Bill Gladstone, of Waterside Productions, is thrilled to represent 
“Aeroplane Angel, the Quixotic Life of Harriet Quimby.” The book is co-written by New York Times
bestselling author, Mark Dagostino.

“Now at a time when the walls of gender stereotypes are breaking down, books and movies are searching for riveting female heroes, said Gladstone. Harriet Quimby is perhaps the most exciting female heroine of all time. She has been a mystery even to those who knew about her tremendous accomplishments and adventures in a world dominated by men over a hundred years ago. 

Thanks to a recent discovery by one of the authors of this book, Allyn M. Schmitz, bringing to light the never before told true story of Harriet Quimby, who happened to be the childhood friend of his great grandmother. Sitting at his great grandmother’s feet nearly 60 years ago, Allyn was fascinated hearing the stories of a beautiful girl who ran away from home at 14 to become a silent screen actress; who raced cars at 100 miles per hour, and flew aeroplanes when they were first invented. The true Harriet Quimby story was related personally to Allyn through post cards and letters that his Grandma Bertha and Harriet exchanged during their lifetimes. The book, “Aeroplane Angel, the Quixotic Life of Harriet Quimby,” is historical fiction based on those stories.

“This story is a blockbuster,” said Gladstone. The actress or publisher that makes it their own will reap big dividends!”
