Dark Side - Non Fiction

Blog Home    Author Website 

In one of my misspent lives, I wrote a variety of non-fiction including feature stories and event coverage. After writing about military history, antiques and archaeology, a logical connection is a museum. And I have to admit, I worked as the director of a local history museum, the Burrowes Mansion Museum.

What came out of a love of the past, besides fantasy worlds, were three non-fiction books.

Of Town and Field covers the history of the Monmouth County, New Jersey towns of Matawan Borough and Aberdeen Township from pre-history times and the first settlers through to the new millennium. The book concludes with how the residents pulled together after their losses of September 11th, 2001.
