About Merlin Douglas Larsen

I'm "middle-aged", married once, have nine children and a growing number of grandchildren, and I'm retired. I have plenty of time for writing and researching. Perversely, I have little ambition to do so. The books I have written seem to have satisfied my urge to explore and express in this medium. "I know practically nothing about almost everything." That's a mantra that keeps me from getting too full of myself.

The test of a good book is when the author can return to it after many years and find it satisfying. Because we mature in our thinking as we age, it usually happens that a return to earlier literary creations shows up how ignorant we were. If a book we wrote back then stands up to the passing of time, we must have done something right. I must have succeeded in retaining the good stuff and disposing of the bad; because, despite the inevitable flaws that I see now and could not see then, my books and short stories from the swiftly receding past entertain me today.

I put up most of what I think I know on the subject of the Norman Conquest at my Website, see link below....
