Knight Time for Paris takes place in twenty-first century Paris, but some of the main characters appear to have come from a different era. It's a tale of adventure and mystery, with a hint of romance, but above all it makes you question our modern ways.
Life in a Casket takes place in 1857, in the riverboat town of Brownville, Nebraska Territory. The heroine, Addy Furlough, is a feisty redhead who recently graduated from Oberlin College, a hotbed of anti-slavery activity. Brownville is less enthused about radical abolitionism, but she plans on changing that and a few other attitudes in town, come what may. However, when she stumbles across what appears to be criminal activity, and investigates, she finds herself mixed up with some shady characters.
The Crystal Keep I wrote for my children, when they were in grade school, but they were avid readers so the reading level is high school. It's an easy medieval adventure story that is somewhat tongue in cheek and, I fear, includes a bit of "Dad humor." If you liked The Princess Bride, you'll enjoy The Crystal Keep.
Hippies of the Religious Right is on the other end of the spectrum. It's an academic work retelling the creation of the Christian Right in America in the late 1970s and 1980s. It traces the origin of late twentieth-century Christian activism not to the fundamentalists, but to the Jesus Freaks who became evangelicals.
Neither Angel, Nor Beast is a simple but delightful tale told by André Maurois, one of France's great twentieth-century writers. This is a work of historical fiction, (set during the time period of the French Revolution of 1848), that had not been translated into English, so my wife and I went to task to make this charming story available for francophiles who haven't yet had the time to learn French.
