Thanks for stopping by and getting acquainted! I'm a nonfiction writer who believes history is best shared and preserved on a personal level, both as a source of knowledge and inspiration.
That's just of of the many reasons I am marekting director of the USS Midway Museum in San Diego. We tell our story on a personal level, just as I do as an author.
Those who make history sometimes surround us. Men who once saved lives on a flight deck anonymously pass by in the grocery store. Incredibly brave corpsmen become physicians, imaging technicians or school teachers. A man who revolutionizes battlefield care dies in relative obscurity as San Francisco's coroner at 48 years of age. As an author, I find that fascinating!
Properly told, history at its core is about people and the enormous capacity we all have for courage and compassion. Their legacy is worthy of our preservation so that it may inspire future generations.
