w elcome to my web page.
For someone who considers email a miracle, this is certainly  a giant step forward. So I'm pleased to have you browse through my site, learn about my writing,
my speaking, and a bit about myself.

I hope what you see captures your interest. I have always kept in mind, whether I'm writing for a large audience or talking in a small classroom, that history
is a story about people. My hope is that you will
learn from what I have written and said, even more
that you will enjoy it.
