History is my specialty. I enjoy learning new facts about the past and then relating them to others in a compelling and instructive manner.

My historical novel Down The River is based on a real event that happened to my family in the year 1813. Although I have fictionalized the story, it sticks to the historical record as much as is known. It is available now through

I have authored and co-authored five books and a video documentary on Pacific Northwest History. 

I have studied and written Pacific Northwest History from prehistoric events to more recent happenings. Several hundred of my essays are posted on, the free online encyclopedia of Washington State History.
