Hello Lovers of Texas History,
I am committed to gathering information about Texas history from 1800 to the present day. My book Mattie is a good example. It is based on my grandmother's life in the 1890's. I sat at her knee and listened to her stories. I also obtained additional information from the museums around our great state.
Currently, I am working on another historical fiction novel about my great-great grandfather. He had escaped Germany in the 1860's and came to Texas on an old ship filled with undocumented Europeans fleeing to Texas. My goal is to have this finished this fall.
