What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love sharing newly discovered historical evidence and information with my readers. I also enjoy retelling the unknown stories of the common man and woman in 18th Century New England. So many people have only heard the stories of John Adams, John Hancock and George Washington so it's important that the contributions of the everyday "Joe and Mary" are told as well.
What do your fans mean to you?
I have fans? (LOL)
Seriously, I would not be an author without my fans. I see them as a critical part of my writing team. They provide important input, promote ideas, share my research results and simply cheer me on. I love all of them and understand I would not be successful without them.
