Welcome to my site! For those who have read Shades of Gray and stopped by to take a peek, I’m so glad you did!

This is a place where I intend to share with readers the blood, sweat and tears that went into writing the novel (yes ,there were many tears), and to provide information about the publishing industry to those of you who have aspirations to write.

For anyone who does not know, I am a resident of Gettysburg, Pa., a stone’s throw from the Mason-Dixon line, and a short drive to the part of the Confederacy of which I write. I have spent many, many hours driving the dirt roads of Fauquier and Loudoun counties… enough so to keep my Jeep constantly coated with the “sacred soil of Virginia.”

In this space I hope to keep you up to date on where I’ll be doing signings or attending Civil War events. If you are in the area, I do hope you’ll stop by and chat with me. For those who live in, or have traveled to, the northern part of Virginia, you know it is one of the most beautiful and historic areas of the country. For those who are not familiar, check back here for pictures of the places that give me inspiration.

I would like to thank the many readers who are helping me spread the word about “Shades” and to invite any new readers to share your thoughts with me at: writefromthepast (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Until next time remember… “We can’t all be Washingtons, but we can all be Patriots.” (Charles F. Browne)
