I like to find the lesser known historical detail, sometimes called the "hidden history," and weave a story


Background Information

A few years ago, I heard a fascinating tale of a young Civil War soldier from Maine.  I knew at once that I would write my first novel, Billy Boy, The Sunday Soldier of the 17th Maine.  And so my journey began. 

Intrigued with the idea of enhancing the lesser known facts of an historical figure, I found another story in the life of FDR--his childhood friendship with a Passamaquoddy Elder, which became a children's picture book, Remember Me, Tomah Joseph's Gift to Franklin Roosevelt.

Continuing with my theme of finding hidden histories, The Galloping Horses of Willowbrook is a creative, non-fiction children's book telling the true story of a boy and an 1894 carousel.

My most recent work, Railroad to the Moon, is a sequel to Billy Boy. While a story in itself, the book weaves a tale between Elijah, the runaway slave, and a Maine historical figure.
