Click An Eye for Glory and you will find a brief summary of the story. There is also find a page about the Fourteenth Connecticut Volunteer Infantry, a page about the research methods and sources used for the novel, and a page that reveals some of the challenges that were faced in writing the book.

Bacon’s Bits is a page devoted to the sizzling tidbits of information that I find interesting and hope you do, too. I’ve included a short biography, a page for news and event info, and a page with some links to sites where you can find lots of additional information.
