I'm Not Here to Start a Personal Cult. I'm Here to Help You Laugh and Think.
I'm a historian (real one, PhD, publications) who told the corrupt university to shove my tenured job in 2008.
Since then, I have written The Snipesville Chronicles series, time-travel novels that spark laughter and thinking among readers of all ages. I have also visited schools around the country, mostly those for poor and working class kids, to present college lectures disguised as entertainment.
I talk to everyone: Kids, adults, janitors, posh people. Unlikely though it sounds, I talked last year to an audience of more than a hundred lovely African-American teachers in suburban Atlanta about African-American history.
In 2021, I started Non-Boring History, a newsletter for adults, helping connect you to subjects from the past that connect to now, and that speak to you. I work more than full-time without salary or benefits. I'm not rich. Your support keeps me doing what I do. Thanks.
