So enjoyed meeting reenactors of the 54th Massachusetts Regiment. And one was a descendant! We were at the opening of the Maine Masonic Civil War Library and Museum.

Railroad to the Moon is now out! It's available on Amazon and Maine Authors Publishing ( and soon will be in ebook formats. My website developer is on vacation, so it will be two weeks or so before I have all the links. Here's the summary from the back cover: Trapped between new found freedom and a promise, runaway slave Elijah is led by hands both seen and unseen to a destiny of which he could only dream. Elijah has been living with the Laird family on a small farm in Maine. The family continues to grieve their soldier son, Billy. In their run north together, Billy had exacted a promise from Elijah, to take his place, to be a big brother to ten-year-old Jamie. Now, Jamie’s ability to heal hinges on his attachment to Elijah. At the close of the Civil War, Elijah insists on going to his southern homeland to look for his father. Jamie is despondent, but Elijah pledges to return. His journey south leads him to adventure, danger, and love. Weaving historical realities into a work of fiction, this is a tale of friendship, loyalty, and a solemn promise.

I'm pleased to announce, albeit a little early, that "Railroad to the Moon" will be coming out in late spring. While it's a sequel to "Billy Boy", it's a stand-alone story--Elijah's story. More details later, but here is an early look at the cover, not yet completed with title, etc. Beautifully illustrated by Kerry LaPointe.

I'm pleased to announce that the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian is carrying "Remember Me, Tomah Joseph's Gift to Franklin Roosevelt" in their gift shop!
