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 was the attack on Hillsborough where he captured the Governor, his aides, and more than 200 uniformed soldiers and marched them to the British prison ship in Wilmington.
"A Passel of Trouble" also provides insight to activities by Quakers, many of whom were involved in the war despite their religious tenets.
