Passing Our Stories

In America, race matters.  Within the artificial construct of race, color and class have mattered for centuries, and still matter today.  I write novels for the purpose of expanding the opportunity for more discourse needed in America about how we use false ideas to divide ourselves; and to demonstrate that we are more alike than different.

Mission: ”Entertain to educate” by telling America’s story as seen by ordinary people in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

My characters are nineteenth and twentieth century heroes and heroines; ordinary laborers, clerks, innkeepers, farmers, lumberjacks, laundresses, spies, and soldiers.  They are black, white, Apache, Cheyenne, Mexican, and of other origins – but, Americans all.  Their stories are told through conversations among themselves and dialog with historic figures.  Their struggles are not different from ours: making ends meet, love found and lost, hatred, violent acts, revenge, acts of kindness, and redemption.

Mine is a voice telling our stories (1861-1976), including history, horror, and humor – lest our stories are co-opted and told for us by revisionists.
