Thank You for the Opportunity

Post by Harold Titus » Wed December 28th, 2011, 1:44 am

Thank you for providing a forum for people like me to be able to read what avid historical fiction readers appreciate and to be able to comment. I'm a retired 8th grade English and American history teacher and the author of "Crossing the River," a historical novel about the start of the American Revolution. What a pleasure it is to learn about what certain people caused that is now of the past, how other people coped, and how universal human nature is regardless of time and circumstance.

My wife and I have enjoyed 15 years of retired living on the central Oregon coast.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Hi Harold, and welcome. Where on the Oregon coast do you live? Back in the last century I used to run electronics from the Coast Guard station in Astoria as far as Coos Bay.
