About William Wresch

I have two sets of books here. The first is an alternative history of the US, envisioning how things might have gone had the French prevailed in the French and Indian War. That series comes from some personal experiences. I have canoed sections of the Fox, and driven along its banks. I have followed the voyageur route from the Sault to Quebec and traveled from Green Bay to New Orleans by car and by boat. My wife and I have spent many happy days on Mackinac Island and in Door County.

I am now starting a very different series. It takes place in the tiny town of Amberg, Wisconsin, a place where I used to live. I began the series as a novel about a militia take over of the town, and it was initially called "Two Angry Men." But both men were predictable and boring. I had decided to have the story narrated by the town bartender - Jessica - and I soon realized she was the most interesting character in the book. She took over that book and became the lead in the Jessica Thorpe series. She surprises me constantly. We shall see where the series ends up. If nothing else, it gives me a chance to relive some good memories from Marinette County, Wisconsin.
