The year is 1774. Storm clouds are brewing over the Colonies. New England and the British military are at each others throat, the result of unfair taxation on the Colonies, yet deemed reasonable by the Crown for the price of protection. Imagine if you can who you might encounter on the streets of Philadelphia. Many delegates were together at the Continental Congress trying desperately to come up with solutions to appease their King. Further west imagine the frontier and the expansive wilderness, untamed and wild. Men had lived there for centuries as the native people or human beings as they called themselves, yet can you imagine seeing things through their eyes? Game was plentiful and the land pure because those dwelling there appreciated what they had and cherished their existence. During the American Revolution the inhabitants of the region were fully engaged, yet the colonists had mixed loyalties; some were dissatisfied with the British government and their ‘Intolerable Acts’, others were loyal to the Crown and would defend the King’s honor at any cost. In addition, native people of many tribes found themselves fighting each other. This is the story of the Taylor family who lived on the western frontier of Pennsylvania, also in Philadelphia and New England. They, along with a host of friends and business associates, unite for the cause of liberty and freedom. Their loyalties will be tried and tested at every turn with the shifting tides of war. Seen through the eyes of Joshua Taylor, an adventurous young man and his father Ethan, a veteran of the French and Indian War, their journey begins with political change and unrest sweeping the land. As the story unfolds you will witness patriotism, love, loyalty, courage, betrayal and tragedy. Follow them on this epic adventure as their way of life changes forever with the coming of the American Revolution. Volume One: On Midnight, At the Edge of Darkness - Joshua is driven to become a man, facing many perilous events as his country moves toward independence. The British military continues to fortify their positions in the Colonies; while the Continental Congress struggles to find a path to peace. Follow these patriots as they take action and unite their fellow countrymen to fight for liberty and freedom.

I was asked by a good friend, who eventually became my editor; Why not write a book, you are a great writer. I thought to myself, who me? I didn't have any ideas, and then I decide to put together a historical compilation of the Continental United States; just the facts, no spin or opinion. This project then became a huge two volume work of over 900+ pages. While putting together this work, I discovered many great things about our Country and to my amazement I came up with a truly great idea for a historical fiction novel. My intention in the beginning was to write a book and present it to my adult children. Also to do something of merit, accomplish a goal, and along the way inform and educate the reader on the facts of our history through an epic and vivid adventure story- this was my mission. The American Revolution changed history. It has effected how the world works and changed the dynamics of governance. My first grandchild came into the world this past year; I could see myself with him on my knee reading him this adventure story and seeing his joyful bright eyes engaged and full of wonder.
