Learning history and culture...
In 1997, I published my first book on how to speak Early Modern English. Since then, I have published 2 more books, including a complete course in learning to speak the language of Shakespeare and the others who wrote some of the most glorious literature in English during the 16th and 17 centuries. Everything, except Speaking the Speeche, is available on Amazon. Speaking the Speeche

Nothing is closer to the truth than a good story...
Ages 10 and up!
Here are three books on American History for the young ones in your life. Or you.
Mary Stumpf at the Battle of Princeton. Set during the years of 1776-1777, it is the story of a girl living in a war zone.
My second novel is a series of books. The Time Chair Diary is the memoir of the intrepid and adventurous time traveler, Ell. The first diary is Big Battles In Trenton.
The second book, Underground, takes place in 1854.
All books are available on Amazon. All are on Kindle. Big Battles in Trenton is also available on audible books.
Mary Stumpf at the Battle of Princeton is a story of love and war. Mary, a 12 year old Quaker and farm girl, who lives in a war zone! With both armies clashing in and around her family farm, they see their share of war. Yet Mary, who is in love with Jimmy, is hopeful of a future without war. After Jimmy's death she goes into a deep depression. Until one day...
The Time Chair Diary is the memoirs of a time traveler named Ell. Ell begins her time travels when she is 11 years of age. With her first journey, Big Battles in Trenton, Ell recounts her experiences with George Washington's Continental Army. Like all time travelers must do, she learns to think on her feet, and to tell a lie when necessary because no one can know who she really is.
In her second journey, Underground, she recounts how the accidental time traveler stumbled into 1974. He's a runaway slave that belongs in 1854. Ell, left alone with the time chair and this accidental tourist, must find a way to get him back to where he belongs. That is where her troubles begin. She forgets to tell one of those necessary lies, and ends up altering her own personal history.
