Revision of the manuscript is completed!

After publishing the illustrated history of 19th Century
hotels, Grand Hotels of West Volusia County, I have
continued to do historical narration for
Great Tasting Tours of DeLand while completing my
history-based fiction adventure novel, Time Will Tell.

Time Will Tell is an eight part journey that takes readers through the turbulent time following the War Between The States. The storyline touches on interactions with several key individuals of the Industrial Age and the possible impact a time traveler could have on the resulting historic events that take place. The entire novel is now ready for marketing to agents from literary agencies and publishers.

Anyone wishing a copy of Grand Hotels of West Volusia County can find copies at The Muse Book Shop in DeLand, Barnes & Noble, Walmart and Target stores, and online at Amazon. Links to some of these sources can be found also on the Bookstore page. Copies of the book are also available during speaking presentations on the book. Dates for these can be found on the Activities & Appearances page of this website.
