Anna's Story front cover for web..jpg (66844 bytes)

                                   Anna’s Story: A Life  
“I might have been born in North Dakota. I might even have been a doctor's daughter, with happy parents who loved one another. But that was not to be.” Thus Anna opens the narrative of her long life, a life that began in a small, log house in northern Wisconsin before there were cars, airplanes, or radios. She bore and raised nine children while living through the Great Depression, World War II, and into the computer age. She coped with the personal tragedies of losing four of those children, two husbands, and endured hard times with dignity and grace, all the while anchoring the lives of those she loved. Anna's Story will reward everyone who appreciates resilience, character, intelligence, and humility.

TTM Cover for Website.jpg (40275 bytes) Recent reader says: SUPERB! Most detailed and well documented compilation of information regarding the details of the events FOLLOWING the massacre in 1847 in New Mexico I have ever found!

The Taos Massacres
   On a cold January night in 1847, Col. Sterling Price was awakened at his Santa Fe headquarters with news from an exhausted rider. A mob in Taos had killed the new American governor and was on the rampage.
   Here is a complete, historically accurate telling of that brief time after America's occupation of New Mexico, when neighbor turned against neighbor, patriot fought patriot, and the passion for revenge overwhelmed reason and restraint.
