Finding Courage: History's Young Heroes and Their Amazing Deeds
Finding Courage: History's Young Heroes and Their Amazing Deeds has been released as an eBook! It has a new cover design and four new biographies. The stories focus on amazing kids who overcame tremendous odds and went on to do something extraordinary for others.
Following on the courageous kids theme, my first novel, Saving Liberty, is also available. If you like historical fiction, you’ll love this book. It is based on the life of Prudence Wright, the first female minuteman of the Revolutionary War. She lived in Pepperell, Massachusetts. I tried to stay true to her story while maintaining historical accuracy. The main character, Dency Wright is a strong and determined young woman. And, like Paul Revere, she had her own midnight ride that saved lives and helped forge a new nation. Saving Liberty is available in paperback or as an eBook.
