Scott Langley                         Alternate History

Born in Philadelphia and raised in Montreal, Toronto, and Indianapolis, Scott Langley currently lives in Indianapolis with his wife and two children.
Scott has written several science fiction short stories and a novel, Hannibal’s Dwarf.  The River Wolf is his first historical fiction novel.  Inspired by C.S. Forester, Bernard Cornwell, Richard Woodman, and many others, Scott wanted to write a Napoleonic adventure, but felt the genre to be crowded and overdone.  It was in reading a biography of Lord Thomas Cochrane and his exploits in South America that gave Scott the idea for a continuation of the Napoleonic Wars set in the New World.
 Scott has always had an interest in history and science.  From a literary standpoint, both science and historical fiction have a set of facts and figures to use as the overall framework – one is based on physics, the other dates.  Literary license within the framework is the heart of good genre fiction.
If you have any questions or comments, Scott can be contacted at SLang1365@aol.com.  Criticism, constructive or otherwise, is appreciated.

During the late 60's he joined the United States Navy; from which, he retired in 1985. Here too, he was immersed in a rich storytelling tradition – “sea stories.” He says, “I never tired of listening to the ‘old salts’ and their wonderful stories.”
Having retired from the Navy, William became employed in the public sector and raising his family with his beautiful wife. He also began teaching Sunday School children at his local church. It was here that William discovered his own storytelling skills. Of this experience he says, “I would tell the stories of the Scriptures, and it was wonderful to see the faces of the children as they listened with rapt attention.”
After some time, William’s family began encouraging him to write out his stories. He began with several short stories; which he shared with family and friends. These were very well received. It wasn’t long until William’s daughter and his brother urged him to write a book. Then, as William puts it, “The rest is history.”

Robert L. Minteer         Political Philosophy

Rob Minteer was born in Sewickley, PA in 1957, and moved with his family to Catonsville, MD in 1967. Freedom beckoned in Daytona Beach, FL in 1973, and he was on his own for a summer. In the meantime his family had moved to Whitehall, MT, where he joined them at the end of the summer. Thus a pattern began that was to continue for the next fifteen years: Wanderlust. He married the first time at age nineteen and tried to settle down, but it just wasn't in him.  He has three children from that marriage, of whom he is very proud. 
Jobs in a variety of trades and in many parts of the country have brought the author into contact with hundreds of honest, hardworking people through the years. Stories heard from many of those coworkers made deep and lasting impressions, as did stories read about injustices throughout the world at many different times and places. Recently the idea of the Freedom Bell Curve and the Pyramid Scheme of Power helped to make sense of much that is going on in the world. The author welcomes comments from readers, either confirming or denying the validity of these ideas. Now, through the Internet, the author hopes to meet even more people than he has met in all his travels, and incorporate many of their experiences and observations into future books.
