Why subscribe?

I love sharing updates and my stories for readers. My stories focus on Americans and American history and culture, but my interests in the Western humanist tradition; classical learning; and science also influence my work: curiosity, creativity, and clarity.

Homo sum; humani nihil a me alienum puto. [I am human; nothing human is alien to me.]

—attr. Terence (trans. Maya Angelou)
