I became interested in writing historical novels based on my research on my family's genealogy. The characters that I discovered deserved to have their stories told. There could be a few more of my more notable ancestors appearing in future books. A book of short comical stories about wild boys growing up is also under consideration at this time.
This book is partly based on actual historical events, myths, and legends surrounding the life of Paramount Chief Opechancanough of the Powhatan Confederation. More than anything else, it is the story of one man's determined efforts to stop the relentless encroachment of the Europeans that would seek to destroy the culture of his people and change forever their way of life.
