About the Author

Graduation from New York University led to a career in education. An M.A., supported by graduate work (Hofstra), and a doctoral program (CUNY), concluded my formal education. Old books, museums and musty libraries fascinated me. I wanted to bring my findings to life.I discovered a path to the past through living history. While a 12-year member of the Brigade of the American Revolution (1975-1986), I recreated el Regimiento de la Luisiana, which became a practical basis for writing.During the American Bicentennial, my group demonstrated from Canada to Florida. As reenactment-commander, I accepted the surrender of British colors at San Augustine. During my tenure, I participated in instructional exercises on the life and times of common Revolutionary War soldiers at the U.S. Military Academy. I received the prestigious Sons of the American Revolution medal. Research on the Bourbon Family’s role in the Americas triggered travels in Latin America, and Europe.I joined the Kingdom of Spain’s cultural effort to publicize its role during the American Revolution; participated in PBS and; Hollywood films (Sweet Liberty); and worked successfully for the issuance of a Bernardo de Gálvez Stamp.In Arizona, after horseback riding on the Gila River, where de Gálvez ventured, my ‘sketches’ twisted—nonfiction became historical fiction; then came the Journalist of the Magdalena Series, a saga of a family challenged with political upheavals, a border war, and drug expansion as they pioneer aviation.Why fiction? “Fiction, when presented with well-defined characters and plots, best pulls another time from dormant dusty pages and drawings.”Memberships included: Arizona Author’s, Company of Military Historians, Hispanic Society of America, NRA, Romance Writers of America, and Southwest Valley Writers.Past-time: rainforest travelsAuthors: Jeff Shaara, John Jakes, Thomas Fleming, Gary JenningsNext novel: The Eagles of the Sierra Madre
