About the Author

Scott Armstrong drew on a lifetime of American Revolutionary War re-enacting, travel through Europe, and extensive reading on a wide range of topics, especially history, to bring Henri's story to life.

A history major in college, he first became interested in Napoleon's ill-fated invasion of Russia while taking a course on the French Revolution and Napoleon. Inspired by his teenage daughter, Helen, he successfully completed NaNoWriMo in 2010. His goal was to write a story that would appeal to Helen as well as to his son, Nathaniel, age 10. The result was Russian Snows.

Scott is the publisher of a family activities and resource guide called Parents' Source ( He grew up doing living history activities with his family. He and his wife, Sandie, met while re-enacting the siege of Savannah during the Bicentennial celebration. Later Scott and Sandie both participated in a parade in Paris on the Champs Elysées as part of a re-created French regiment during the 200th anniversary commemoration marking the end of the American Revolution.

Scott lives in southeastern Pennsylvania with his wife and two children.
