To book a presentation of “Hidden History: Busting the Puritan Myth” please contact me by email at The programs are based on the research for Book 1, much of which could not be included in the novel. No electronics required. It is more of a discussion with visuals. I am also happy to discuss the writing and self-publishing process with writers groups. Free within 60 miles of Madison, NH. Signed copies of Vagabond Quakers: Northern Colonies will be available for purchase.

Please note that during 2017/18 I was promoting Book 1; when I began the first draft of Book 2 Vagabond Quakers: Southern Colonies I suspended programming to write. Hence the hiatus in appearances. I am happy to do a program if asked, but I am not seeking bookings currently. (author’s note 7.16.2019)
