I love the three R's: Read'n, Rite'n and Remember'n!


Background Information

 

Following early retirement April 1, 2001, my time is spent writing historical fiction novels about memories from the past; playing golf and tennis; spending time with my four grandchildren and--most of all--the love of my life, Julia.  

 

My first book, Resurrected Memories: The Story of A Lifetime, was released in June 2004--and now my second book,Voyage to America 1766, has been released (May 2006). 

 

If I had known many years ago that writing could be so much fun, I would have started much earlier!

 

Everyone, save none, has a story to tell and I'm going to tell every last one I can remember!

All of my Achievements, Certifications, and Awards have been left behind with the company I worked with for thirty-five years--and well deserved they should be!

For now, any that I receive can't hold a candle to the pleasure I get from writing!

Additional Information

My first book is titled "RESURRECTED MEMORIES: THE STORY OF A LIFETIME". Following is an overview:--- Beginning with the death of Abel Herman in a Civil War prison camp in 1864, memories by his great, great grandson are resurrected. From despair inside this prison camp, to the passionate hope for a family that almost wasn’t more than one hundred years later, memories come alive on every page. Focusing primarily on the decades of the 1940’s, ‘50’s and ‘60’s in the rolling foothills of western North Carolina, encounters with people and places long lost and forgotten, are given a chance to live again. From youth to young adulthood, memories containing danger, humor and a sense of honor are relived in family lifestyles that occurred in a safe and more secure time period; contributing to "Resurrected Memories: The Story of a Lifetime." My second book is titled "Voyage to America 1766". Following is an overview: In the 18th Century over 50,000 people left their homeland in Germany, their Deutschland, for America. One-fourth of them never survived the treacherous six month voyage across the stormy Atlantic Ocean. Mostly settling in Pennsylvania--on free land from William Penn and his “Holy Experiment”-they raised their families and began a new life in a strange new land shared by Native Americans and wild animals. Later, with the ending of the American Revolutionary War, some migrated down The Great Wagon Road and resettled again, on virgin land in the Carolinas. One these pioneers—Johannes Wilhelm Herrmann—was my ancestor. This is his untold story.
