I have been having a ball writing and marketing my newest Historical Fiction, Smoke from Distant Fires! My g-g-g-grandfather, James Bryson, had an interesting connection to the Shawnee Indians who lived in the Indiana/Ohio area. In the process of writing, research on the Bryson side of the family led me to the Greenville, Ohio Public Library and the Courthouse. Where will your family research lead you?
Millie Bryson had no idea about her family's history and was shocked when her 8th grade teacher assigned a paper, explaining their connect with The Prophet, the brother of Tecumseh. Millie had never wanted to stand out. What will she do when others have the fuel to bully and tease her?
At the end of the book is a genealogy chart for readers to begin the search for their ancestors. It can be fun and fulfilling. It tells us who went before us. It is up to each of us to carve out our own future.
