Gretchen lives and works in Chester County, Pennsylvania, an area rich in Revolutionary War and Colonial American history. Her enduring interest in 18th Century America began at a young age, inspired by tales of adventure, romance, and local lore. After working as an editor for a publishing company, she decided to write a story of her own. So began a journey fueled by her passion for breathing life into history through believable characters, authentic historical details, and plots woven with adventure, romance, and suspense.

A longtime student of the American War of Independence, Gretchen has published three novels set during the revolutionary era: The Devil Take Tomorrow, This Day is Ours, and A Devil of a Time.

Hello Charles,

I do create my own maps using existing 18th Century maps, which I customize for my stories. I've had to learn a lot about graphics, though I would rather spend time doing research! I've been studying 18th Century America since the 5th grade. The War of Independence is a special passion of mine.

I shall check out your work as well!

Best wishes,

Gretchen(less)
