About meI am a lifelong reader and book collector. My childhood was spent adventuring along the shores of the Great Lakes; exploring the colonial era forts, traveling the myriad waterways and investigating Native American culture and lore with my Grandfather, a local historian and anthropologist. Thus was my obsession with history born, resulting in degrees in history, political science and a JD.
About my libraryMy library reflects an interest in both fiction and non-fiction including: history, Great Lakes history, military history, philosophy, mythology, folklore, classic literature, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, comic books, art and more.
