I am a writer of historical narrative, recreating the lives of people such as the explorer Captain John Smith, the English scientist Thomas Nuttall, the Swiss/Mexican explorer and scientist Jean Louis Berlandier, the missionary explorer Daniel Little, the scientist and clergyman Jeremy Belknap, the American patriot Ebenezer Hazard, and the mountaineer Captain John Evans. I write local histories of places in New England and Oklahoma. I write and edit encyclopedia. My first fictional work, "The Curse of the Bronze Amulet," set in 18th century New Hampshire, has just been published by Black Rose Writing.
I am a prolific writer, with more on the way!
