Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

New Rev War novel

My new novel on the American Revolution War is out. "A Passel of Trouble - The Saga of Loyalist Partisan David Fanning." is a fact-based story about one of the most extraordinary characters who fought in the Carolinas.

During the first three years of the war, he was captured fourteen times in South Carolina.  He went to North Carolina in late 1780, was commissioned a colonel by the British Army and created havoc in the central part of the state. Among his most notable raids…

Jeff Shaara - inspiration to all authors

Historical novelist Jeff Shaara helped Charlotte, NC, celebrate the anniversary of the signing of Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence back on May 20, 1775.

Jeff didn't start writing until in his 40s and after his father, Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Shaara died.

The senior Shaara won…

"A Passel of Hate" is Editor's Choice in Historical Novel Review

The review of "A Passel of Hate" from the Historical Novel Review reads in part:



"Epley does a thrillingly effective job fleshing out his many characters (there are no one-dimensional heroes—or villains—here), and he lavishes attention on the kinds of real-world details too many historical novelists gloss over—readers will learn as much about trail rations and camp organization as about higher political ideology, and Epley’s undemonstratively evocative prose and tightly…

South Carolina reenactors like A Passel of Hate

"A Passel of Hate" captured the true essence of the war in the backcountry during the Revolutionary War.  The main character, Jacob Godley, was treat.  "A Passel of Hate" ranks right up there with any of Allen Eckert's or Kenneth Roberts historical novels.  Every arm-chair historian should have "A Passel of Hate" in their library.
