Meet the Author

Philadelphia native James Francis Smith a graduate of LaSalle University with an MBA from Pacific Lutheran University, after a successful career in industry and finance, returned to his first love—historical novels. Or as he prefers, history chronicled in a novel style. In documenting the Irish-American story, he dedicated his remaining years to recording the achievements and contributions of Irish-Americans and Irish-born to their adopted land. Smith’s novels chronicle the lives, loves, and wars of people and events that have often been overlooked by history:

Druids, Celts, and Romans – Europe circa 400 BCE

The Civil War’s Valiant Irish – US 1859-1865 (currently being professionally edited)

The Last of the Fenians – Ireland 1910-1923

The Life and Times of Liam O’Donnell – US 1918-1945

Rory O’Donnell and the Kennedys – US 1946-1968

Unholy Conspiracies – US circa 1990-2005

Western Civilization – A collection of short stories from ancient history to the current era
