The Patriots of the American Revolution Series focuses tells the dramatic stories of real men and women who were part of the struggle to give birth to the United States of America. The heroes in these stories are actually people from my own family tree, of from my wife’s ancestry.
Throughout many years of genealogical research, I have discovered these fascinating characters in our bloodlines. They came from different regions of the continent (and world!), and from diverse heritages and experiences. I have made it my goal to share as many facts about them as I possibly can within a historical fiction framework.
What that means is quite simple: these are works of fiction, but they are based upon real people. I use what I can discover about their actual histories as a “skeleton” of truth, and then I add layers of fiction to help make a good story. Well … at least I try to.
