Its hard to believe that Luska will have been published two years ago on October 20th! That was an exciting time. I've learned a lot since then and my third book, The Land of the Young, should be out in the near future. So, here's to all of you who read Luska and gave me some great feedback and helped me grow as a writer.

Lovely review of my scifi space opera Luska by talented author and reviewer C.E. Clayton
My novel, The Fiery Salamander, set during the end of the French and Indian War in the Carolinas is ranked #212 on Amazon in the category "French Historical Fiction". I think that is pretty magnifique. There are a few elements in the novel that speak on the influence the French had on the Carolinas during this period. First, there was a large population of French Huguenots that settled in Charleston and one of the characters, Zarina Michaux, is from that distinct ethnic group. Also, there is a French doctor character who is based on a real person of the same name, Jean Cantzon. Dr. Cantzon lived in the Carolina backcountry during this era and, in the novel, tries in vain to save the life of one of the main characters. Also, the Shawnee in the book are French speakers.
Here's something profound.
