About meMy ancestors migrated from Germany to Texas around the 1850s, so I am especially interested in German and Texas history, but history in general attracts me. I write fiction and nonfiction.
About my libraryMy fiction collection is heavy on history and historical fiction. Since I'd be broke if I bought all the novels I wanted to read, many favorites are not in my home library. In nonfiction, I collect history books, especially about medieval and Reformation-era Germany, the Celts, ancient Rome, Hungary, medieval Europe generally, Texas and the U.S. Civil War.
