Reviews

A beautifully told story with colorful characters out of epic tradition, a tight and complex plot, and solid pacing. -- Booklist, starred review of On the Razor's Edge

Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary ... the stories will linger after the last page is turned. -- Publisher's Weekly, on Captive Dreams

On the 8th of July 1776, the Declaration of Independence was read aloud in public in Philadelphia, Trenton, and in Easton PA.  Easton held a public celebration


The Easton Flag.  Said to be the device displayed on 8 July 1776
The flag itself, preserved at the Easton Public Library, can be authenticated only to the War of 1812, when it was carried by Capt. Horne's Company of the City Guard. 

The event is celebrated as Heritage Day, and includes a public reading of the Declaration, song and dance, and a big fireworks display on the river.
