John Swindells



I am on my third career.  After 33 years in a US Army uniform,  I taught high school biology back in Virginia.  While on a trip to Belize, the idea of telling the story of the First Americans struck me out of the blue. I moved to Kentucky in pursuit of this project and of my wife who deigned to marry me in 1999.  She became my research assistant, first reader and editor of what grew to a three-volume series.  I like historical fiction as I can tell a true story in an interesting way.  I intend to continue this sort of story-telling and traveling about the country to find the details I need.
