About the Author
As a reader, I’ve found that I learn far more about history through well-researched fictionalizations of events than through dry recitations of facts. We’re wired to respond to stories of fellow human beings, and as an author and in my television appearances, I seek to recount the stories of our national origins during the American Revolution, bringing to life the day-to-day concerns and struggles of the men, women and children who experienced that era not as history, but as their lives.
I relish those stories that let my readers see the hard decisions, the inhuman sacrifices, and the soaring triumphs of the human spirit that made history during the war. While much of the war was fought on the battlegrounds of places like Lexington, King’s Mountain, and Yorktown, it was won over the kitchen tables of ordinary people, both here in the colonies, and in the households of England.
Join me in this trip into the not-so-distant past, a time when great events unfolded around people not much different from you or I.
