The former slave narratives presented in ECHOES of SLAVERY represent a small segment of more than two thousand first-person accounts of actual slave experiences, transcribed in their own words by the FWP and recorded for posterity. These first-person testimonials open a window into the past, enabling contemporary readers a rare opportunity to share the trials, fears, frustrations, hopes, and visions of those individuals caught up in the maelstrom that was 1800’s America.
Walk alongside these resolute men and women in ECHOES of SLAVERY as they portray the real world in which they struggled and endured. Experience the harsh and often brutal reality of slavery as it really was!

I am an 80 year old retired architect/writer/photographer. My lovely wife Violet and I reside in Greenwood, Indiana. Vi and I have been married for nearly 60 years. We have raised two sons and one daughter and are proud grandparents of eight grandchildren. We both enjoy the outdoors, especially fishing. In addition to writing, much of my time is spent in the pursuit of trout and bass, tying trout flies, playing golf, and photography.
I have been writing for more than 50 years. The majority of my early work revolved around fishing and related outdoor subjects. I penned angling columns for several regional newspapers and eventually secured a monthly trout column with an angling publication entitled FishingPA.
I wrote FUDGE! several years ago but never pursued publication in ebook form until this year. ECHOES OF SLAVERY is my most recent work. Both books are presently listed for sale with bookrix.com. I’m currently working on a young adult book entitled THE TREASURE OF OYSTER ISLAND and I expect Volume II of ECHOES OF SLAVERY to be ready for publication in several months.
