Smashwords Interview

Why did you write your latest work?
Since my early teens, I've been an avid student of 18th and 19th century American history.

Patriots everywhere gave up, ready to accept defeat and the cold winds of tyranny blew hard against the flickering flame of Liberty. Yet, there remained small bands of patriots—men and women—who would not quit . . .
