BIOGRAPHY I was born in Greenwich Village in NYC, grew up in the suburbs and went to college at St. Anslem in Manchester NH, graduate school at the U. of Chicago. Produced short films, commercials and documentaries in NYC for awhile; moved to Nashville, TN. I am married with four children, six cats and a dog. I have six books in print on Southern history and folklore. My latest book, Ambrose Bierce and the Period of Honorable Strife, is now in print and deals with the legendary author's Civil War experiences. Future offerings will deal with unexplored aspects of American history as well as non-fiction and fictional works on the Age of Arthur and the Dark Ages of Great Britain.
