Travel Site for Places of History
ABOUT – The Author
I have been a writer all of my life. My interest is history and fiction. Traveling to sites, reading and researching history is a passion.
I began as a staff reporter and provided local coverage for a weekly town newspaper. Later, I became a feature writer for a community newspaper chain. As a freelance writer my articles were published in numerous national & regional periodicals. These included general interest, special features, reviews, interviews, a regular column and inclusion in several mastheads as contributing editor.
I worked as a Public Relations Consultant for a fundraising/preservation support network for museums and historical sites. There, I wrote effective press copy, produced newsletters, set up events, coordinated organizations & acted as press liaison… all for the preservation of national heritage. My interest in history also led to the founding and publishing of a regional history periodical. Since my work demanded much historical research, I found her way around libraries, archives and museums and enjoyed interviews with historians and curators.
In spite of success in presenting history to the public, my love has always been writing fiction. Much time was spent in writing and researching an epic adventure, DUTCHMEN – A Tale of New Netherland and the mystical short story collection, The GUIDE — Thirty Encounters with a Native Spirit, North America 1642- 1959. The sale of these books in PDF or print version helps to support the YoreAmerica website.
ABOUT – YoreAmerica.com
Today, all of my work has come together at Yore America, a multimedia website created to bring history up close and personal. A visitor can literally spend hours listening to, reading and viewing all of the free content at this site. The material is presented within a multitude of characters and events.
Too often, however, history is perceived as being boring with conditions no longer relevant and times very easily forgotten. Too often, we forget that history is really about people… not just dates … not just faceless masses… not only the most recognizable names… but about ordinary people who had to live through confusing issues and events just as we do today.
With this in mind, I created a website to present the past in a multimedia mode. At YoreAmerica.com, I personalize history. Through a combination of well-researched factual events and well-written historical fiction, the visitor receives an interesting picture of everyman’s life & times with a chance to learn some facts, explore some philosophy, enjoy engaging drama and ask what would I do if I lived there and then?
If you are involved in the history field, professionally or personally, you may also want to share your ideas and interests through or YoreView. This updated blog provide an opportunity to present historic people, places and events to visitors of YoreAmerica.com.
