I love history! I've been a reader all my life, but it wasn't until I took an elective class on Peter the Great in college that I came to understand what great stories the past holds. Did you know that Peter the Great was almost 7 feet tall at a time when the average man was 5' 4"? Or that he traveled to Holland while he was Czar and worked for months as an apprentice ship builder? Stranger than fiction--no? So now I am playing out my long-time ambition to meld my love of great stories with my love of history by writing historical fiction. On this page I plan to provide some of my thoughts on history and fiction and point the reader towards some interesting information on both.
