What happens when ...

What happens when you cross the love of writing with an equally strong passion for family history? If you had a reference librarian for your mother, as I did, you end up with a historical novel about a couple of ancestors who were on the scene at a pivotal moment in history - the arrival of the Mayflower 400 years ago in 1620. The result is Mayflower Chronicles: The Tale of Two Cultures.

This historical novel about issues that drove a few dozen religious refugees to venture across the Atlantic and their encounters with the Pokanoket people who were dealing with their own challenges, has been he major focus of my writing life for the past seven or so years.

But not the only focus. I enjoy meeting interesting people who are making fascinating contributions to our global village. Come with me through weekly blogs, occasional newsletters, and updates here about these people and the inspiring things they do.

A Tribute to Mary Brewster

400 Hundred Years Ago ...

I grew up hearing stories about the Mayflower voyage. My mother was a reference librarian and devoted hours of her early retirement years documenting our connection to William and Mary Brewster, two of the hundred plus two passengers on that ship. It sailed 400 years ago this year. For the past seven years learning more about the people on the ship, where they came from, why they sailed, and what happened when they arrived have consumed the majority of my own early retirement years.

The result of all the curiosity and traveling to places connected to the story is Mayflower Chronicles: The Tale of Two Cultures. This historical novel will be published later this year by Green Writer’s Press.

Meanwhile, I wrote a tribute to Mary Brewster and posted in an assortment of Facebook groups. The response was staggering. Literally hundreds of folks have commented that they too are related to this woman, or others on the ship who sailed with her.

I’m collecting names of people who want to be notified when the book is published. If you’re interested, please use the sign-up form on the right and select the newsletter list.
