Battle of Valcour Presentation

Leave a comment

Tuesday, October 11th at 4:30 pm in the second floor lobby in the Moore Building of Clinton Community College, I will be the key note speaker for the Saranac Chapter of the Daughters of the America Revolution’s annual commemoration of the Battle of Valcour – the historic battle on the shores of Lake Champlain near Clinton Community College. I plan on giving a sense of the people involved with the Battle and some of their individual stories.  I hope to see you there.

I am the key note speaker at this year’s memorial service at Fort Chambly, Province of Quebec, Canada in June.  I will also be the key note speaker at the Commemoration of the Battle of Valcour at Clinton Community College this October.  I will update the exact dates and times when I have them confirmed.  My thanks to the Daughters of the American Revolution for inviting me to these two exciting events.

Thanks to a gracious invite by the Daughters of the American Revolution I will be giving a short speech on the Battle of Valcour Island on the 239th anniversary of the Battle October 11, 2015.  The event will be on the second floor lobby at Clinton Community College in Plattsburgh, New York at 1:00 in the afternoon.  I’m most excited that the lobby overlooks the battle site for a sense of we are there.  Hope to see you there.

Been a long time

Been gone a long time due to health reasons and transitioning at the College where I work.  Happily, I’m back and getting set up to do some more writing.  First I plan on participating in NaNoWriMo writing my first cozy mystery.  I have loved cozies since I was a teenager.  I’ve participated in three NaNoWriMos and am batting 33% with one win and two incompletes so I’m hoping to bring it up to 50-50 this year.  We’ll see.

Latest Writing

I recently had an article published in the first issue of Rediscovering New Hampshire. Haven’t seen it online, but I know it is available in many locations throughout New Hampshire.

I have an article in the Summer issue of North Country Living magazine. It’s available in many locations throughout Northeastern New York or you can read it online here:

I am now writing for WritersDomain. I’m enjoying this experience immensely, but I’m surprised at how challenging it is for me. I’m so used to journalistic and academic writing that this style is not coming naturally for me yet. With experience will come improvement which I’m excited about developing.

I finally have a book project underway and will provide more details as it nears completion – due to the publisher by late September. Just a tease for now.
