Engaging today's teens with America's yesterday
Through four decades of teaching, two things, among other things, stood out to me. First, young people long to be engaged in the classroom. While history textbooks stunted interest, short excerpts of quality historical fiction ignited their curiosity. History became more meaningful when presented with realistic characters involved with a well-researched setting.
Second, the one constant that drives humanity's story through time is human nature itself. While modern technology separates us from the past, our inner emotions are a link to it. As such, I've always been fascinated by the contradictions within our nation's past.
The goal with each of my books is to captivate teens with the American story, using characters of relevance to them. I appreciate your interest in my books. If you're so inclined, I'd appreciate a review from you on the book's Amazon site after you've read it.
