About this author

Retired university English teacher. Currently an avid student of world history. Author of books for preteens & teenagers to promote racial equality and religious tolerance. Foreign ambassadors to the United States have praised Bullheaded Black Remembers Alexander, a story about the ideals advanced by Alexander the Great in Egypt, Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan. Surprisingly his "universal ideals" belong to all of us and are closely related to the aspirations of the Arab Spring and to the hopes of American soldiers currently in the Middle East. In the picture by the pyramids that's me, second from the left. See readers' comments on www.bullheadedblack.com.

Lucinda Dear J.L,

Jesse Hanson Thanks for including me on your friends list, J.L.
Your book sounds very intriguing to me, in more ways than one: First that it has a spiritual quality to it, then the subject of Alexander the Great, and also the point of view. One of my favorite books is Traveler by Richard Adams, told Robert E. Lee's horse.
Want to wish you the very best. I hope you don't mind my also asking you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your reading list. It's fiction but was inspired by events from my life. Namaste, jesse
