About C. W. Shain

The author lives within a stone's throw of Boston, MA, with the love of his life, a ceaselessly demanding and abusive mackerel cat, and 4,000 history books. When not teaching, he dreams of going back in time to buy Coca-Cola stock and making love to long-dead actresses. He can often be found driving about in an old British convertible, collecting autographs of deceased kings, and attempting to reignite long-forgotten wars online.

The paperback edition is now available on Amazon! (http://tinyurl.com/pointlesspursuit)
