I love trying to figure out how things would have been, why did this or that happen, what were things really like when my character walked the streets of Venice, etc.

But one of my other favorite things is hearing from people who have enjoyed my books - the email from the gentleman who said he finally understood the Electoral College after reading my book, the note from the woman in Amsterdam who appreciated my brief history of the Pilgrims, and those types of things.

Catherine McGrew Jaime Write often and write lots. And write about things you are passionate about - its lots more fun that way.

York Novella Completed

The rough draft of my York novel (or novella, since it's not an overly large book!) is finished. I've sent it off to be proofread, and hope to have it ready to print later this month or sometime in February.

It was fun to write the Lewis and Clark story from York's perspective. York's participation in the Expedition is so seldom discussed.

I knew quite a bit about the American Revolution before reading Jeff's books on the topic, and I still learned so much. His books are so well done, they make one feel like they are actually there!

Abraham Lincoln
“A capacity, and taste, for reading, gives access to whatever has already been discovered by others. It is the key, or one of the keys, to the already solved problems. And not only so. It gives a relish, and facility, for successfully pursuing the [yet] unsolved ones.”
Abraham Lincoln
