After a career of more than two decades, I retired from the book publishing industry and now devote full time to researching and writing about the Civil War and the American West; usually , though not exclusively, about the Indian wars of the post Civil War West. My work may also be seen from time to time in Wild West and other historical publications.
From time to time I also venture into other fields as the spirit of literary adventure moves me (articles, essays, and fiction). An example of the latter type of work is "The Ringer", a short story set in a fictional Iowa town in the 30s and 40s. Baseball often provides the backdrop for these stories, which will eventually be collected in an anthology titled the Taylerville Chronicles.
I am a long time member of the Western Writers of America, the Western History Association, the Society for Military History, the Bozeman Trail Association, the Order of Indian Wars, and the Custer Battlefield Historical and Museum Association.
