About me

Industry Law
Occupation writer and lawyer
Location Falls Church, Virginia
Introduction Writing history has been a passion of mine for over twenty years, and politics has been an obsession since the 1960s. But to me, history has to have a purpose, to expose truth, to point direction, to provoke thought. It has to tell a story. I’m especially drawn to neglected topics like the Gilded Age, the post-World War I Red Scare, or old ocean divers — blind spots in our collective memory that often point to raw nerves. But enough about me. Hope you enjoy the Blog. Humor me on the attitude. Thanks. –KenA
