Biography

Homeschool Mom of 12, Historian, and Author

Smashwords Interview

What have you been up to lately, and what are you working on next?
I'm just finishing up an economics textbook, and then I look forward to starting the fourth novel in my Life and Travels of da Vinci series. So far I've been averaging about one novel per year on da Vinci. I don't know how long the series will be when I finish it, since the first two books, Leonardo the Florentine and Leonardo: Masterpieces in Milan each covered decades of his life, and the latest one, Leonardo: To Mantua and Beyond, only covered six months of his life.
Who are your favorite authors?
I love to read and write historical fiction, so not surprisingly my favorite author is Jeff Shaara. His are among the few books that I will actually rush out and pay full price for when they come out. I think historical fiction is a great way to learn about history, and I hope that my historical novels will succeed in having even a portion of the influence on others that Shaara's have had on me.
