About the Author:

Greg Romaneck has been writing about the Civil War for over twenty years.

Greg is a featured writer for three Civil War journals catering to living historians. He has also authored several books and booklets dealing with various subjects related to Civil War history. In his writing Greg has focused his attention on social history and, in particular, how the Civil War affected the course of people's lives. Additionally, Greg has critiqued over 1000 books for Children's Literature a leading source of review information for educators, librarians, and parents. Among those critiques are many dealing with Civil War topics such as individual battles, general histories of the war, personalities, African-Americans, slavery, women in the war, and the Underground Railroad. It was in working as a reviewer that the concept for Civil War Books for Younger Readers came about. In his spare time Greg enjoys backpacking, reading, films, and bicycling. Greg has a particular love for wilderness areas and hiking in Northwoods locations such as Isle Royale National Park in the midst of Lake Superior. He also participates in Civil War reenacting and has done so since 1992. Greg resides in DeKalb, Illinois with his wife and three children. He is a professional educator as well as an author. At present, Greg is working on several writing projects inclusive of poetry books dealing with the Civil War and wilderness themes, a leadership book drawn from Abraham Lincoln's writings, self-improvement tips, a Civil War novel, and a study of the memoirs of Civil War soldiers and civilians. Civil War Books for Younger Readers is Greg's third publication with AuthorHouse.
