JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS

Journey Into Darkness, written from a boy’s point of view for middle grade through adult, is all at once a life-changing adventure, a gripping story of war, and a boy’s extraordinary coming-of-age. Out of unfathomable tragedy, comes an unforgettable tale of family, hope and what it means to be human.  Researched for historic accuracy, Journey Into Darkness takes the young reader through the war with a peer. It takes the reader into battle on the ground with Duane as it unfolds, into life in the camp and on the road with the boy; and in this shared existence, the reader not only shares the life and times with the boy, but also learns a detailed history lesson without even realizing it. As one young reader, 14-year-old Isaac Sassa, writes, “I have learned a lot about the Civil War through your books. I find them a lot more exciting than a dry history textbook.” Reviewers concur. “This would be an excellent resource for middle-school American History classes, giving a boy’s eye view of the Civil War and reminding students that kids their own age were caught up in active duty during the war.” Blue Ink review, and “This book does have a place in schools, I think it would be the perfect adjunct to a Civil War class.” Simon Barrett, Blog News Network.  [available as a 4-book series, B&W, or a 4-part novel comprising the complete series, B&W or color]

WEST TO FREEDOM

When Thomas Reynold’s best friend, Daniel Russell, a slave by birth, was in danger of being taken from his kindly owner and sold by a heartless bank owner, Thomas and his pa devised a dangerous plan to help Daniel escape westward into Indian Territory.  Set during the early days of the Civil War, in the spring of 1862, in the northwest corner of Arkansas, “West to Freedom” is the story of that journey and the dangers encountered along the way.

“I found your book very interesting and educational. I have learned a lot about the Civil War through your books. I find them much more exciting than a dry history textbook. It was inspiring to see how Blake was bitter toward the enemy for killing his father, but in the end he actually met the man who killed his father and forgave him. It is a story of bitterness and anger, which turns into forgiveness and friendship.”
