My first published project in 2010, Lewis and Clark: Murder on the Natchez Trace took four years of research and writing. Centered around the death of Meriwether Lewis in 1809, a few years after his return on his famed expedition west, four friends and colleagues come together again to bring his killers to justice. Centered around the War of 1812 (1812-16) and the expedition itself (1804-06), the story fully explores these characters in ways never before imagined. Chock full of 'golden nuggets', we get historical and political perspectives on many great people of the era, and see real history unfolding before our own eyes! Its a wonderful experience to get these ideas on paper and to share them with all of you!

I followed that with Texas Freedom: Last Stand at the Alamo, published in 2012. Extensive research, topped with a trip to San Antonio over the weekend honoring the 175th anniversary of the attack, left me with a sense of responsiblity to tell the story as accurately and with as great care as never been done before. I wanted to cut through the myths and legends that surrounded the famous battle of the Alamo, and give a true appreciation for the events and the people who made it happen. I am very proud of my efforts and am grateful to the historians to helped me along the way!

My latest effort is Crosshairs, a World War II novel that explores the real-life adventures of three veterans in the European Theater. I have dived headfirst into the extensive history of the war, and discovered along the way an profound respect for the men who risked their lives on a daily basis for their country. It was an honor to bring their stories to light!
