The debt I feel to our Founders is deep. As I have learned about them and their struggles, I have become curious about the life they led and what I have found out is that they were no different than we are. Their stories are fascinating to me as I picture them, their everyday lives and the thoughts they had about what they were doing and sacrificing.
My writing is not confined to early American history, though. I write whatever I please and I have projects in various stages in short stories, journal, memoir, and opinion. So, I suppose I am inspired by wanting others to know what's on my mind.
