Larry French
Welcome to my website. If it’s informative writing with a historical perspective you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place. I'm a member of the Florida Historical Society and I love to write about history.
I retired after serving as the Executive Director of the West Volusia Historical Society (WVHS) to assist my wife in her touring business, Great Tasting Tours and spend more time on my writing. I am a novelist, speaker, and have been an editorial writer and content provider of Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Mathematics curricula. When I’m not helping my wife with Great Tasting Tours you can find me applying my expertise as a Florida Master Naturalist somewhere outdoors or actively keeping history alive through the historical reenacting that I've been doing for over 35-years.
You can see and read some of my work on the Samples of My Work page of this website. You can also find the Prologue to my first novel, Time Will Tell: The Awakening which blends my love of history and science and is set during the
American Civil War and early Florida. This novel is still seeking a publisher so if you like it let me know.
Arcadia Publishing recently accepted my proposal for a book on local history. It's titled, Grand Hotels of West Volusia County. The final proofs have been submitted and the book will be available in April 2018. I'll be sharing more abou this book here and on social media and providing a link for purchase.
