Fan Mail!

An email I received from Douglas Rife of “GravelySpeaking”

Thank you for reading my blog,, and giving it a thumbs up. I read your s and thoroughly enjoyed the discussion of generals of the North and the South. I just had a book published that a friend of mine, Gina Capaldi, and I wrote for kids called, The Civil War: A Hands On History, published by InnovativeKids. I guess you hit a nerve since it is a topic I love so much. I find your writing style engaging. I am going to try to bring mine up a notch on my blog. I am new at blogging, so it will probably take me a while. If you check out my blog again, read Saving Graces and Goldie. I think those are two of my best efforts. Any suggestions to improve what I am doing, I will willingly listen to!
Thanks again,

I was SOOO flattered to get this email. If you’re weird like me and into old dead stuff, you should check out Gravely Speaking here.

For those in the Portland area, speaking of Civil War, military history, dead guys, etc.: my dad will be giving a book talk at the Historic Butteville Store on Thursday, I believe around 7 PM. Anyone who wishes to stalk me will also find me there!
