BOSTON: the Small Town with the Big Story
I will be self publishing (DBA ‘doing business as’) Seanchí Publishing and plan to make my books available in eBook, paperback and hardcover formats. Progress in writing has been overshadowed by the joy of caring for my grandson (now grandsons) for the past 7 years. It has been possible to conduct research and design book covers on the computer while holding a baby. However, writing is much more demanding and to ‘get in the Zone’, I often work between 3AM and 7AM. As a result, progress has been slow.
Currently, I am working on a book titled, THE MASSACHUSETTS BAY COMPANY’S BOSTON MEN. From the sailing of the Mayflower in 1620 to the 1640 advent of the English Civil Wars, twenty-thousand individuals migrated from England to America in what is known as The Great Migration. Though less than one percent of these immigrants were from Boston, Lincolnshire, ten Boston men helped found the Massachusetts Bay Company while four of their number led the company as Governor or Deputy Governor for fifty-one of the fifty-five years it existed. This book tells their story and is planned for release in 2022.
At the same time, I am writing a biography of John Cotton titled JOHN COTTON: An Intimate Investigation of His Life and Times, which was awarded First Place in the WRITERS’ LEAGUE OF TEXAS MANUSCRIPT CONTEST for nonfiction. This work is planned for release in 2023.
Although most of my writing is devoted to historical nonfiction, I am working on a personal volume of verses.
