I'm a writer and historian by training.
I specialize in making faraway places, times, and topics more accessible - and fun.
I write for a world in which all readers are valued as informed co-intellectuals.
No turgid, passive, autopilot prose.
No wasting readers' time.
No cutting corners on research.
Instead, my writing aims to clarify and inspire. I emphasize:
Vivid, concrete historical details.
The best primary sources.
Leaving readers feeling smart,
capable, and ready to act.
