My four Promised Valley novels, set at the end of prehistory, ask whether history and civilization might’ve begun and proceeded differently than they did. Without the senseless bloody wars. Without the equally senseless discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. I’ve published the first two, Promised Valley Rebellion and Promised Valley War.” I’m close to publishing the third, Promised Valley Conspiracy. I’ll publish the fourth, Promised Valley Peace, in 2013.”

I grew up in rural northern Illinois. My father and mother were hard-working tenant farmers who loved to read. So did my siblings (one older sister, one older brother, one younger sister) and I.
I obtained a bachelor’s degree with honors from the University of Illinois (major: history; minor: English literature) and a law degree cum laude from Harvard Law School.
I became a public-service attorney representing indigent and disabled adults and abused and neglected children. All during my life as a lawyer, I spent most of my time writing arguments on behalf of my clients, in the trial courts as well as the higher appeals courts.
For many years now, I’ve lived in Chicago with my partner who has picked me up when I’ve fallen, and driven me home again, possibly as many times as I have him.
I’m writing and publishing a four-book series of novels asking whether history and civilization might’ve begun and proceeded differently than they did.
