Roaring Rabbit Publishing
Maurine Ruth McCullah's first book, "Oaklayne, a Civil War Saga", was published in May of 2010. A history buff, she extensively studied the American Civil War with her late husband. He inspired her to write historically accurate fiction to convey historical events of the past in an entertaining and enlightening format. Her civil war novel has enjoyed great success, prompting her to share with her readers the dramatic subsequent events of The Reconstruction Era.
Co-Author, Karen C. Shriver, was fascinated with the depth of information she discovered researching the history behind their 1840’s Virginia Manor Home, located near the setting of this book. Many of the structures mentioned in this writing are fashioned after actual buildings in the mid 19th century that still remain in the area today. Creative and artistic, Karen loves God, her family, nature and a four legged clown. Married to Bryce for 46 years, today the Shrivers enjoy living on Amelia Island Plantation in Florida. They have two sons and three grandchildren, with another grandchild on the way.
